A tall carved teak Mandalay Buddha has an elegantly draped robe with a deep edging of thayo, a lacquering technique used for centuries by Burmese artisans to create the look and feel of intricate wood carving. The forehead band is also thayo, lacquer thickened with bone ash that dries to the hardness of wood. A thin brown/red lacquer applied over the carved teak allows the grain of the dense native wood to show. Traces of gold add richness to the figure and double lotus throne. The face is beautiful, with finely carved downcast eyes and a serene expression. This mid-20th century carving is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 24 ½” (62.2 cm), width 8 ½” (21.6 cm), depth 5” (15.2 cm) SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
