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

About

The fine silver bowl depicts scenes of various adventures from the Jataka story, hammered into the silver in high relief and repousse and surrounded by relief floral decoration. The extraordinary silver bowl is traditionally used for ceremonial or offering purposes but not confined to religious use. The bowl shape has a long history in Buddhist countries as it is conventionally regarded as being similar to the one which the Buddha used for receiving alms. The silver is approximately 90% pure.
