Photographer's Note

There is an elaborate offering which devotees present to Buddha respectively to the monks in Laos only at the Wat Si Muang. So far I have never seen this kind of offerings in any Buddhist temple, possibly it is part of the ancestor cult or other non Buddhist tradition: On a tray there are 9 small square bamboo baskets each one filled with slices of fruits, flowers, coloured sticky rice, sweets, and one cigarette. Most probably Buddha according to their belief will get the essence of the offerings and after that the monks can have them.
