    I want to import the Pagoda style lacquerware into Thailand to use in our lamp stores. How would I go about visiting your village and is there a guide to show us around?

    My family and I visited Bagan in August 2016. We were there for the big earthquake!

    I saw some beautiful very large wooden puppet heads in the large Bagan market. I believe it was the Mani Sithu Market. I liked two different styles of puppets. One was the young girl with two pig tails in in hair, and the other was the puppets of girls laying on their stomachs (one is yellow and one is green in the pictures below).

    I would like to buy two large wooden puppet heads of the young girl with her hair in two balls, and two of the girls laying down. Can you purchase these for me and send them to me in the USA.

    I can pay by credit card, Western Union or PayPal. Or any way that works for you.

    Please help me! My family loved your country and we really want these as reminders of our trip.

    Thank you,
