CARNET DE VOYAGE DE JEAN DUMOULIN:
In 2017, one of my connections in Bagan took me to an intermediary entrusted by the monks to sell objects to enable the renovation and operation of the monastery. It was a difficult decision but I overpaid the objects in order to keep clear conscience, a decision made easier by the fact there were no Buddha statues...
The first is in good condition but bears traces of its age while the second is in poor condition, significant gaps and cracks, (see photos).
It will be packaged with care, insured shipment via Bpost with track & trace.
