Thailand produces some of the most magnificent Buddha statues that I’ve ever seen. The craftsmanship is truly excellent.
I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to visit a place that we can see how Buddha statues are being made. The place is located in Northern Thailand
A lot of work has to be done. Example, the Buddha statues on both the pictures above and below are made of marble- first, a huge marble stone is bought and carved from stratch.
Below: The Buddha image has been carved- and it will be repainted.
This is an example of an almost finished Buddha statue. We asked the owner- it is sold at a shop near Mae Sai for about 350000 or 380000 baht (RM35k to RM38k).
