Detail: This statue is a museum quality late-18th Century Shan Buddha. The lines and features are a lot more refined compared to the 17th Century Shan Buddha that I am offering (search: 17th Century Bronze Shan Burmese).

Detail: This statue is a museum quality mid-17th Century Shan Buddha with its “classic” style of simple lines and features. Much less “decorative” than the Buddhas of the late 18th and 19th Centuries. This particular Buddha was found buried in a temple garden in Mai Sai in… Continue reading
