Antique Burmese-mandalay Buddha/ Alabaster-gilded Wood-glass-metal/ 19th Century

Antique Burmese Alabaster and Gold Gilded Buddha
~ 19th Century, Mandalay ~

Large and Beautiful

~ please scroll down for more photos ~

Very fine sitting statue of Buddha, dating from the mid to late 19th century and originating from Burma.

The body is carved, lacquered, and gilded wood decorated with inlaid glass gems and mirror work. The head, hands, and feet are made or carved white translucent alabaster, and the ornate gilded head piece is made of metal.

Circa 1865 - 1890's.

Mandalay, Burma (Myanmar). SIZE:

Height (including headpiece & base) - 21.25" (54 cm)

Width - 12.5" (31.8 cm)

Depth - 8.5" (21.6 cm)

This Buddha is very elegant and striking with a beautiful, peaceful expression carved into the alabaster face and graceful stylized carving of the hands and feet. It depicts the Buddha as a young man.

The head dress or crown is made of cut and fabricated metal, probably sheet iron or brass, and decorated with stamp-work, hand-cut inlaid glass mirrors, and a gilded surface. It is removable.

The carved alabaster head has elongated ears and sits in a cavity at the neckline of the carved wooden body. It is easily removable. The alabaster is of a fine grade, very pure and white with a slightly translucent quality that makes it almost glow in the light. The features of the face are carved, incised, and colored black, red, and blue (the eyes). The hands and feet are permanently attached to the wood body and are not movable. They are also beautifully carved and look very life-like.

The body of the Buddha is of carved wood with a graceful thin form. The surface is gilded lacquer and is decorated with inlaid mirrors of clear and green glass. As well there are ornate raised lines and a mine-cut large clear glass gem in the center of the chest.

The buddha is sitting on a lacquered and gilded, red-painted wood base, with similar decoration and an old metal attachment for something directly in front of the feet. The back of the base has been added onto so that the Buddha sits straight. This addition was probably needed and made when the piece was removed from it's original placement in a building or temple.

This Buddha statue is in excellent antique condition as shown in the photographs. It has light wear to the alabaster parts and the gilding overall. There are small losses here and there, but nothing major and the piece displays beautifully.

The Buddha has a beautiful aged patina overall, with darkening to the gilding and other parts and smoothness to some of the surfaces. It is beautifully aged.
