Burmese Buddha Statues & Iconography, Chinese Antiques
Burmese Buddha Statues and wood carvings are often very ornate with lots of embellishments such as gilding, Thayo lacquer and glass mosaic decoration, depending on the area in which it originated. The Mandalay Buddha statues are the most highly decorated whereas the Shan Buddha statue is often plain without any embellishments, excluding the Shan Jambhupati Buddha statue which is shown wearing a crown and jewels.
Buddha statues not only add a decorative touch to any room in your home or garden, they also give a sense of harmony, peace, and tranquillity to the areas in which they are placed.
I am continually adding interesting articles and videos related to Burmese Buddha statues, Burmese wood carvings and handicrafts, Buddhism, Burmese history and other related information.
Hopefully you will find them interesting.
