Golden Statues

The English ability in and around Dalat, Vietnam, is quite low, so when I rented a scooter and drove around the region, I wasn't usually able to find anyone who could tell me about the things I found. One place I stumbled upon was some type of temple, wherein I found these – and many other – gold (painted) statues. I'm not sure what religion they represent, but it looks fairly Buddhist. A quick Wikipedia search informed me that almost 75% of Vietnamese report following either Vietnamese folk religion, or do not have any religious affiliation, so perhaps these figures are in some way connected to Vietnamese folk religion.

Available in the following sizes (Rectangle A): 10x8, 14x11, 20x16, 24x20, 30x24, 40x30.
