Rare Burmese Tai Lue wooden buddha sitting in Mara Vijaya (calling the earth to witness) posture on a base with Burmese inscription, meditative facial expression. Trace of original gilding remaining.

Top of the head is a stupa-shaped "flame" or called usnisa, symbol of the realization of Nirvana or indicative of supreme knowledge.

Tai Lue is a group of tribal people living in Burma. It is difficult to find buddha from this ethnic group. Tai Lue buddhas look more primitive than typical Burmese buddhas.
