Burned - Pingtung
These are a few images from tomb sweeping this morning. This statue is only about a foot tall, one of many around the buddhist graveyard. Fireworks are commonly used to scare away evil spirits, but sometimes they find and unintended target. . . Posted by Hello

He's not the only burn victim in the buddhist cemetery, but the "what happened to me?" expression on his face caught my eye.

I take it some of these statues are quite old? Would they be hand crafted? Lovely image.

Thanks guys!
Wanda, most of the cemetery statues are mass produced. There are a few shops nearby that do hand carvings, but people keep them at home for Feng Shui - different statues and writings are placed in each part of the home for good luck.
