AUTHOR’S NOTE: In Western eyes this gathering of alms would be considered begging but not so in Buddhist Thailand. It is considered an honor to give, and one makes merit, an important part of Buddhism, by giving to the monks. The monks’ alms bowls are typically made out of strips of steel with brass tops.

A handful of families have produced these items for generations and they make unusual souvenirs.
