Why We Love This

Burmese 18th-century dry lacquer Buddha head with downcast eyes and slightly protruding lips. The small-pointed hair locks or shwebo thorns are attached to a tall flame. The face bears Shan characteristics and has an unusually serene expression that was originally covered with gold-leaf. Dry lacquer technique is used to build up pieces with cloth soaked in lacquer on a wooden frame, and the clay core is subsequently removed. This piece is very rare due to its size and condition.
