These early teak shutters were collected in Pagan, Burma.
Carvings at front represent:
At top: Hinta Birds from Burmese mythology
At center panels: Kinnera, Burmese Angels, sitting atop lotus buds and stems held aloft by monkeys representative of Hanneman devotees.
The left side shutter has a small hole at the top which appears to be a knot in the wood that was over time loosened and removed. Speculation is that perhaps removed by novice monks to allow them to view outside monastery when cloistered as it is well worn at edges and shows great patina ( see photos )
Have been mounted on a custom wood and iron stand for display. Can be easily removed if desirable
Dimensions: Height: 74 1/2 inches Width: 29 1/4 Thickness: 2 1/4 inches
