The Wider Image: From statues to toothpaste, the Myanmar village 'blessed' with marble bounty
The fine white dust that shrouds much of his northern Myanmar village also covers sculptor Chin Win as he leans over a half-finished Buddha statue. "We are blessed to carve Buddha," he said at his stone workshop surrounded by the seven white hills that give Sagyin village its name, which means "marble" in Burmese. For generations, artisans in this part of Buddhist-majority Myanmar have carved out a living from the marble, fashioning mostly colossal Buddha statues to be sold in the nearby city of Mandalay or exported to neighbouring China and Thailand. Many of the several thousand villagers here earn a modest living from the marble mines, hauling the slabs down the hill, carving them into statues, or exporting them overseas. Burmese marble, which ranges from pure white to bluish grey, is prized for its hardness and texture. A 45-tonne slab can sell for $40,000. In Sagyin, specks of the stone are used for everything from brushing teeth to washing clothes. REUTERS/Ann Wang TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SEARCH "SAGYIN MARBLE" FOR THIS STORY.

Mya Lay, 25, and one of her colleagues, both of whom work at a marble mine, pose for a photo at the marble mine where they work in Sagyin, Mandalay, Myanmar, October 19, 2019. "I was born in this village and for generations this is what we have done: the men work on marble carving and the women work in the marble mines or polish the marble statues," said Lay. For years, she has walked down from the mines from morning till sunset carrying large marble slabs on her head, laborious work for about $3.50 per day. "If I could I would leave the village and find a job in the city," she said, adding that she wanted a better life for her daughter. REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "SAGYIN MARBLE" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Around the world in 45 toilets
Newspapers lie on a toilet seat in a house in Mandalay, Myanmar, October 5, 2015. Some 2.4 billion people around the world don't have access to decent sanitation and more than a billion are forced to defecate in the open, risking disease and other dangers, according to the United Nations. The UN says that while there is sufficient fresh water on the planet for everyone, "bad economics and poor infrastructure" mean that every year millions of people - most of them children - die from diseases linked to poor sanitation, unhygienic living conditions and lack of clean water supplies. To mark World Toilet Day on November 19, Reuters photographers captured pictures of toilets in cities, towns and villages around the globe.
