A Burmese Buddha revered for healing the spirit as well as the body holds a pot containing the water of long life. Ornamentation is especially dramatic, with a high spired crown and the lavish use of a Burmese lacquer process called thayo on the robes to represent elaborate embroidery. The cape is flared at the sides giving the figure a striking silhouette. Small applications of gold leaf added by the devout when a Buddha is displayed add interest to the dark brown teakwood carving. This mid-19th century Burmese Buddha is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 25", width 6-3/4", depth 5".
