Complete set of five Shan esoteric Buddhist images. These consist of a Buddha, three monks and a chedi. These are covered with traditional gold and back lacquer and the bodies are made from compressed powdered herbs or temple incense ash. They have a quirky abstract quality to them, their facelessness represents that the individual is inconsequential but has the potential for becoming a Buddha, on the bottom are the eight Burmese zodiac symbols based on the days of the week. For some reason the Wednesday has two. Free international shipping via Hong Kong Registered Air Mail. Largest piece is 7.1cm/2.8in and smallest is 3.4cm/1.3in.
