Very fine gilt wooden Burmese Nat with elaborate dress, inlaid with many sparkling mirror pieces. The figure is in a protective position with hands guarding off evil spirits. The Nat's name is "Amay Yay Yin", meaning "Mother Yay Yin" and she conquered the river. Thus, people who travel by water, revere her to protect them from danger. It is a masterpiece of Burmese temple art, very rare nowadays and in perfect condition, no cracks nor repairs whatsoever. Size: H. 22" ( 56 cm.) x W. 7" ( 18 cm.) D. 5.25" ( 13 cm.)
