A Mon Buddha from 18th century Burma has the distinctive facial features and very high finial that identify Mon images from the Ava period. The waisted throne is edged with geometric decorations typical of Mon images of the era. We purchased this figure about 20 years ago in Burma from a dealer whose collection included mostly 19th century Shan images. This one is clearly from an earlier period and, although there is some overlap between the Shan and Mon sub-states in the characteristics of their Buddha images, the Mon features of this Buddha are dominant. This fine piece is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 7 ¼” (18.5 cm), width 4” (10.2 cm), depth 2” (5.1 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
