Title

Consecration: A nun lights her incense stick, 1987

Description

A nun lights her incense stick as the achar looks on. Here we can see the second and third tiers of the altar. On the second tier there are two bottles of coke, obviously these would not be traditionally used in Cambodia, they may however substitute for the bowls of juice or sap from the sambour tree, a type of thorny cassia tree with yellow blossoms that exudes fragrant juice, that would traditionally be used but is not available in Lowell.

Consecration of the Buddha Statue, photograph 7 of 45, from Cambodian Traditional Crafts and Religious Ceremonies.
