Drawing on hand – Art of Myanmar

Drawing on hand has become a popular item in Bagan, ancient city of Myanmar. You can find the local artists at the temples, especially famous ones. 

We saw this artist, Ko Aung Kye at Manuhar Temple. We were just looking at his sand paintings, surprisingly he offered me to draw a picture on my hand. It would be an awesome experience for me, so I said yes. 

He asked me to choose different types of pictures, "Bagan-Thu (term used for the woman/girl from Bagan Dynasty), Bagan-Thar (term used for the man/boy from Bagan Dynasty) or elephant, etc.". I chose Bagan-Thu, and here is the lovely drawing on my hand.
