Very rare Burmese wooden and alabaster crowned Buddha or sometimes known as 'King Buddha', wearing diadem-crowns and ornaments of kings instead of ordinary monk's robes. The rarity of this Buddha comes with the alabaster on head, hands, feet and the wooden body and base which is not commonly seen in the alabaster Buddha, beautifully preserved lacquer, glasses and gilded gold.

Crowned Buddha represents the Buddha's role as a universal sovereign.
