A ceremony to donate a wooden portrait sculpture of Tatmadaw Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing in honour of the 73rd anniversary of the Armed Forces Day was held at the Tatmadaw Military History Museum, Nay Pyi Taw, yesterday morning.
The Tatmadaw commander-in-chief accepted the donation.
On behalf of the donor, U Kyaw Kyaw explained the reason for donating the Padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus) wooden portrait sculpture to the Tatmadaw commander-in-chief.
Next, the donors presented the wooden portrait sculpture, which was accepted by the Tatmadaw commander-in-chief, who in return gave U Saw Hla Aye and his party a certificate of honour and gifts.
The wood portrait sculpture was carved from more than a 100-year-old Padauk tree in Myaingyingu area near the Myanmar-Thailand border. The wood was donated by U Saw Hla Aye and the carving was done by wood sculptor U Ye Yint Naung, who worked on the sculpture for some two months. The wood portrait sculpture weighted a tonne, and the work is estimated to have cost some Ks100 million. —Myanmar News Agency
