Guest Book
Large, circa 18th century lacquered Shan Jambupati (royal attire) Buddha, from the Amarapura period (1789-1853). (see last three images for 18CE examples). The finial has been replaced and is not original and removable with some minor loss to the bottom of the crown noted in last enlargement. This is carved from very heavy wood- most likely teak with relief molded lacquer (Thayo technique) and glass inlay (Hman-zi Shwei-cha technique). There are some old and newer restorations on this piece- as to be expected on ancient wood. H: 103cm/41in.
