Solid Silver Hand-Worked Burmese Ceremonial Bowl, Jataka Scenes in Relief, Shan

$5,600

About

The silver bowl with finely chased details in high relief depicts scenes from the Jataka tales. These tales are moralistic tales, either from the lives of the Buddha or parables taught by Buddha. The rim and the base of the bowl are finely engraved with floral and foliage scrolling in relief. The silver bowl is traditionally used for ceremonial offering purposes but not confined to religious use. Silver bowls of all sizes are made in imitation of the begging bowls used by Buddhist monks, or water-bowls, or similar to the one Buddha used for receiving alms. The silver is approximately 90% pure. Weight: 1,300gm
