Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

20 inch high lacquer over carved wood late Burmese Mandalay period Buddha image with gold leaf gilding . Mid century or earlier. Altar ready. Robe is decorated with a myriad of small mirror glass beads. This is a fine example of a motif rarely seen outside of the Burmese tradition, where the Buddha is depicted in fancy royal attire, rather than as a simple monk. This image has been recently cleaned and re gilded with gold leaf. An ideal piece for a dharma room, meditation center, yoga studio, or private home display.

It is apparent in our wide selection of Buddha images from many different regions, that each item is offered as found, with the original patina and artistic applications. This particular rendition was cleaned and re gilded with the intention that it would hopefully be displayed in a situation for which it was created: as a visual point and a reminder for those folks who are practicing Buddhists. In most temples and dharma centers the images are kept clean and the gilding refreshed as an expression of respect and as a meritorious act. The cleaning did not include repair of wear and blemishes acquired over many years. Every tiny glass dot was cleaned individually to restore the intended rich sparkle and reflected light for which they were intended. The result is the magic that such cherished objects exude.

NB This is a valuable item and is precious. It will be packed tightly in a custom made plywood box with screw fasteners.....museum quality shipping to guarantee safe arrival.
