Stand up


These “everytime-throwing-standing-up-doll” , or pyit (throw) tain (everytime) taung (stand) dolls stand guard over piles of sesame-seed covered coconut jelly, banana potstickers, banana leaves stuffed with sweet rice, and a bowl of sweetened coconut milk on this sidewalk dessert stand. The dolls empower their owners with the ability to always “stand up” to adversity and challenges – a common decoration for stores and stalls for their ability to bring good luck and resilience to ventures.
