Beautiful Laotian sketches

Beautuful Laotian sketches, mostly with a religious theme, showing monks, temples and elephants. (Laos is called Land of a Thousand Elephants). Reminded me of the delicate and exquisite Chinese or Korean style painting. Each of these paintings in painstaking done, no mass production here. I could spot one or two Asian looking tourists having a real serious discussion with the stall owner about these paintings. They probably wanted to buy a couple of them. That of course left me all the time in the world to photograph them undisturbed. (Luang Prabang, (Unesco World Heritage city), Laos/ Lao PDR, April 2014)
