This well carved teak Burmese Buddha is peaceful and elegant. The finely modeled face and lavishly decorated robe are lightly touched with a subtle gold wash applied over a thin base of reddish lacquer, allowing the wood grain to show through. Edging on the robe and a body decoration that swirls across the right shoulder and down the arm are impressive examples of Burmese expertise with thayo, a mixture of lacquer and powdered bone or ash that dries to the hardness of wood. The figure sits in earth touching mudra on a double lotus throne delineated with more thayo. This early to mid-20th century Buddha is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 16 ½” (42 cm), width 10 ¼” (26 cm), depth 7” (18 cm).
