Travel diary of 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 for the pieces, in order to have good conscience...
Please note, this item is in very poor condition, the joints are detached, it has gaps and needs restoration (see pictures).
It will be packaged with care, and sent by insured mail with tracking via Bpost.
