About

Artist: Unsigned Medium: Carved Teak, Gilt with Red Lacquer Movement: 18th – 19th Century Worship Dimensions: 80 x 37 x 17” Price: $25,000 Provenance: Private Asian Collection Mandalay Burmese Buddha originally used for Buddhist temple worship. The sanghati robe flows in multitudinous folds from the left shoulder. In his right hand Buddha holds the medicinal myrobalan fruit. The herb is known as Haritaki, Chebulic myrobalan, Bihara, and Harada in different dialects, and is one of the three fruits found in the traditional formulation of Triphala. Haritaki is a very important herb in Ayurveda, thought to promote fearlessness, feed the brain and nervous system, and bring awareness and wisdom. Mandalay period: 1853 – 1948 Mandalay was considered the center of the Buddhist universe in Myanmar. King Mindon moved the capital from Amarapura to this new site and called it the city of Mandalay. Tradition maintains that Guatama Buddha visited the sacred peak of Mandalay Hill with his disciple Ananda and proclaimed that on the 2400th anniversary of his death, a metropolis of Buddhist leaning would be founded on the plain below the hill. The political center of this new city had the perfect geometrical form of a Buddhist Mandala, for which the city was named, Mandalay. The Mandalay period ends at the time when the Burmese gained its independence from the British.
