19th Century Burmese Buddha Figure in Prayer Hand-Carved from Sandstone


A 19th century Burmese Buddha figure. This Buddha figure of hand-carved sandstone originated in Burma, now Myanmar, during the 19th century, though quite possibly the late 18th century. The carved sandstone was finished in a dry lacquer and gilt, and is a beautiful representation of the sculptural traditions and styles of this time. This Burmese Buddha is seated in the kneeling position; his palms are closed together in front of the chest in prayer.
