Carving Art 

Shwe Inbin Monastery
Myanmar (Burma), Mandalay, March 2012

Shwe Inbin is a remarkably well preserved teak monastery structure. It was built in 1895 by a Chinese orphan who worked himself up from poverty to become a rich and powerful merchant, married to one of the king’s daughters. Long used as a monastery, it is now being preserved as a historically significant structure; monks from the still-active monastery buildings that surround Shwe Inbin still act as caretakers. The carvings that adorn the teak building, in the traditional Burmese style, are gorgeous. So is the building as a whole: http://www.gskenney.com/ginger/photographs/mandalay-shwe-inbin-monastery-or-an-orphan-makes-good/

The artwork, the concept and the ingenuity of the ancient is something (for me at least) say it's lacking today.
Peter this is a piece of art that must be kept for future generations.
