For Buddhism, monks are an everyday part of lives. They usually wake before dawn to pay alms and respect to the men who sacrifice their lives for the sake of their beliefs and to sustain a nations belief in the words of Buddha. Every Burmese male in Myanmar at one point will become a monk, such is the deep rooted belief in Buddhism and the profound affect they have on the fabric of daily life. Now you can own a complete set of your very own group of monks complete with their ‘alms’ bowls during their morning rounds where people will wake very early to give food and water to sustain their day.

These statues would look lovely in your home or garden or a perfect gift idea to someone who understands the spirit of monkshood and Buddhism.
