The centennial monument of General Aung San was carved from December 2014 to 31 January 2015.
Arrangements are being made to transport it from Mandalay to Natmauk to keep the stone monument at the Bogyoke museum at his residence in Natmauk.
The stone monument, six feet and four feet wide was carved by sculptor U Tin Tun Aung, bronze smith U Hla Myint and stone sculptor U Aung Min in line with the design of Tampawady U Win Maung. The stone inscription was written in English and Myanmar by Sitagu Sayadaw who sponsored the cost of a marble stone and transport.
“We created the stone monument for enabling the people to know activities of General Aung San in his centennial anniversary,” Tampawady U Win Maung said.
The stone inscription says that General Aung San is a Myanmar’s hero not only in military affairs but in political field during independence struggles.
