Bagan is an ancient city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Mandalay Region of Myanmar. From the 9th to 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Pagan Kingdom, the first kingdom that unified the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar.
A colleague and his friend travelled to Myanmar. His friend had captured this image and for a few minutes he was captivated at the beauty of the view. The sunset and the silhouette of the Bagan left them breathless and they felt the calm and peace in their hearts and mind.
My colleague commissioned me to paint this photo of his friend as a gift for his friend's birthday. His friend mentioned that I was able to capture the beauty and serenity of the scene. Painting this made me happy and felt so much peace.
