A Burmese Buddha with elaborate thayo edging on the robe and throne sits in lotus position with right hand in earth touching mudra. Carved of teak, the figure is lightly gilded, allowing the dark wood grain to show through, particularly on the face, arms and feet. Generous edging on the robe and double lotus throne is made of thayo, a lacquer and bone ash mixture used by Burmese artisans for relief molding. The serene face and tightly curled hair with low rounded unisha are classic Mandalay style. This mid-20th century Buddha figure is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 12” (30 cm), width 8” (20 cm), depth ( 5 ½”) 14 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
