Burmese wooden Buddha sitting in Mara Vijaya (calling the earth to witness) posture on a base, with meditative facial expression, emphasized by the half-closed eyes which look downward, lacquered and gilded with inlay of colorful glass pieces on the headband, the borders of the robe, and the base.

The buddha's robe is elegant with gold sheet and delicately carved as layers of pleat. The folds of the robe flow over each other. Traces of original lacquer and gilding remain in very good condition.

Age: Burma, Mandalay period, 19th century
Measurement: Height 46 C.M. / Width 38 C.M.
Condition: Nice condition overall (some expected degradation due to its age). Please refer to the enlargement photos for more details.
Shipment: Worldwide shipping from Bangkok, Thailand at actual cost. Please e-mail us for the shipping fee.
