Inspired by "The Poy Sang Long "is a rite of passage ceremony among the Shan peoples, in Myanmar (also known as Burma) and in neighbouring Northern Thailand, undergone by boys at some point between seven and fourteen years of age. It consists of taking novice monastic vows and participating in monastery life for a period of time that can vary from a week to many months or more. Usually, a large group of boys are ordained as novice monks at the same time.
It can also be observed in neighbouring Thailand, where Shan immigrants have brought over the traditions from Myanmar. The ceremony goes on for three days, as the boys (dressed up like princes in imitation of the Lord Buddha, who was himself a prince before setting out on the religious path) spend the entire time being carried around on the shoulders of their older male relatives. On the third day, they are ordained, and enter the monastery for a period of at least one week, and perhaps many years.
Artist message: I made this art by my lineage inspiration,When I was young I saw my brother joined this ceremony and I never forget how he was happy,A lot of things on this art are from my feeling to my brother and I hope I can show how much children from Shan will be happy to join the ceremony,It is so pure and beautiful ,The golden lotus and little golden line meaning about the buddha teaching ,it's about young lotus in mud.
