This rustic carving of Buddha seated in the curve of a horn is from the Shan Tribal People of Southeast Asia. As the Shan have migrated in increasing numbers into Thailand from neighboring Burma, where they are primarily located along the eastern border, their veneration of Buddha, expressed in a range of figures from fine to folk, has become recognized outside their tribal areas. This touchingly simple portable carving shows the extent that Buddha figures are integrated into the Shan way of life. It is probably from the mid to late 20th century, although dating it is difficult. The metal stand was added. Dimensions with stand: height 10-1/4" (26 cm), width 3" (8 cm), depth 6" (15 cm). Dimensions without stand: height 8-3/4" (22 cm), width 2" (5 cm), depth 5-1/2" (15 cm).
