Communisme et religion font plutôt bon ménage au Vietnam
Pas étonnant par conséquent que la sculpture de statues de Bouddha de toutes tailles, soit une activité artisanale florissante
Communism and religion cohabitate smoothly in Vietnam
Thus not surprising that the sculpture of Buddha statues of all sizes is a flourishing handicraft activity

this is so beautiful and your flawless execution makes it so amazing as a study. The artistry and skill here is clearly visible and the shallow DOF makes it all stand out so appealingly. As usual you have come up with something both compelling and visually stimulating. Love it!

Good capture of the artist engrossed in his trade. I like that he has taken precaution marble dust is very bad for lungs. Perfect way of presenting the creator and his creation. It is said that God created humans, here a human is creating God :-). Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic composition with the chosen DOF. Lovely colours and the white marble Buddha has such exquisite details displayed. Thanks for sharing.

I like the downward look of Buddha Sculpure and the creator look toward the Buddha

For mass production you will need alectric machines, but I doubt that Michelangelo would have used one even if he had the chance. This is a very nice and interesting photo anyway and the colours and light are very pleasant. By the way, I think Vietnamese communism also lives happily together with capitalism and petty bourgeoisie ;-).

A nicely composed image of the artist and his creation. The white sculpture against a white background, is so precisely handled! This is a wonderful demonstration of experience and skill. Thanks for sharing.

This is an interesting shot.
I wonder how much quicker these modern sculptors are at making their sculptures! Certainly a modern innovation is to wear a face mask!
A very well composed shot showing the close attention between sculptor and sculpture. The shallow dof accentuates the sharp focus.
My warm regards,

Superb photo of this artist at work. Even if you could only see very Little of the artist's face his concentration is clearly visible. It is quite clear that he is very skilled and that it is a last finishing touches that take place. TFS and have a nice evening!

I like the contrast between the perfectly white statue and the bright color of the man's shirt. It gives the Buddha an almost otherwordly appearance.
Very appropriate DOF and sharp details.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Bonsior dear Patrick, how are you?
Great shot, full of Asian taset different from usual your posting but I am realsed so much. Good combination and framework and his serious eye reflect his intense and delicate work so well. Vivid color balance is also so fantastic to see.
All the best and have a good day! TAKERO

ce boudha semble apprécier les attentions qui lui sont prodiguées... avec beaucoup de sérennité !
Jolis contrastes de matières et de couleurs qui nous interpellent.

Une photo intéressante et de très belle qualité. J'admire la dextérité du polisseur. J'imagine ce que cela donnerait avec l'engin entre mes mains!

A very good composition. Nice balance of blue and white. Good use of shallow depth of field. Excellent capture of the Buddha observing the work of the artisan.

Hi Patrick. Artist at work. Buddha images in all forms are very popular in Southeast Asia. The narrow frame is well chosen. It almost seems as if the watch buddha figure the artist at work. A beautiful photo.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

Great definition in a very narrow depth of field.
Spendid color combination whites and blue.

Au-début, le fait que la statue soit blanche sur fond blanc me gênait un peu et puis, en fait, je trouve que cela apporte beaucoup de légèreté, en concordance avec la précision du geste du sculpteur. Très belle netteté sur cette scène bien captée.

Great control of DOF and exposure here to capture a great light. It is incredible to think that something so delicately shaped and crafted is created by using such a cumbersome grinding tool! I have used one - it is all I can do to get it to cut a straight line! This man has my admiration for his skill.

I've seen it when I was there! Good portrait with the sculptor in action. I like your pov, it's a nice Buddha and the focus is very good - the blue shirt really stands out.
