Interesting wood carving of a tiger carrying a woman in its jaws. This relates to an ancient Burmese legend about two brothers (messengers of King Anawathra- founder of Pagan) who fall in love with a young girl who rejects them and so they send a tiger to kill her. If any buyer is interested I can email more info on this. This is circa 19th century there some damage and to the figure of the woman. H: 35cm/13.8in.
