Bagan is an amazing place to visit. It is only 24 square miles and yet has over 3,000 temples and pagodas. It is also famous for its beautiful lacquerware.
The art of making the lacquerware is quite fascinating and when you see a bowl or plate, you may not know the extensive process it went through to end up as the final product.
Nicola recently visited the Maung Aung Myin Art Gallery and Lacquerware factory in Bagan and was able to watch it being made. Here she interviews the lovely daughter of the family that runs this business and captures a great explanation as to the process of producing these beautiful products.
