Burmese Buddhist Wood Carving, Sitting Monk or Teacher, Early 20th Century

About

Burmese Buddhist wood carving. Sitting monk or teacher, early 20th century. This simple yet wonderfully expressive carved figure from Burma was most likely placed in a village shrine or temple. Long years of exposure have eroded the underside of the base through to an area near the right foot; and have, as well, led to some deterioration of the color. The piece is structurally solid. Dimensions: 8.5 inches wide by 7.5 inches deep by 15 inches tall.
