Buddha carving - from That Gala Theup stupa, Saravane, Laos by 


This tablet lay hidden in the pyramidal stupa of That Gala Theup for centuries, until a lightning strike released it from its reliquary in 2007.

The naive charm of this 11cm votive tablet and the fortuitousness of its (re)appearance, makes it much cherished to the local people – who subtly honor their guest with daily offerings of sticky-rice and wild flowers.
