The carved lacquered and gilded wooden image is in the style of the 11th century colossal standing Buddha statues from Ananda Temple in Pagan, with a long robe open to the ankles over body hugging clothing. Also typical for this type of figure are kneecaps that are visible through the clothing...

Southeast Asian : Carvings : Wood : Pre 1800 item #154386 (stock #08-07)
Silk Road Gallery
In Burma's remote villages, Buddha images displayed in temples and homes sometimes were the work of local artisans. The figures, created with great reverence, are humble and often quite appealing. This charming 18th century folk Buddha is from the Shan people, one of the numerous ethnic groups that make up Burma's devoutly Buddhist population. The image, carved from teak wood, was coated with several layers of black lacquer and then gilded, typical for Burmese carved wood figures...

Silk Road Gallery
This bronze 17th century Buddha is attended by two important disciples--the monk, Sariputta, on his right and the monk, Mogallana, on his left. This magnificent group of three figures has a long history in Burmese art, appearing on 12th century plaques excavated at Pagan, and on stone reliefs down through the centuries until the late 18th century when sculptors began portraying the two monks separately. Here the monks are shown kneeling on long lotus stems...
Southeast Asian : Folk Art : Pre 1900 item #156646 (stock #02-76)
Silk Road Gallery
The originality and strength that give folk art its appeal abound in this unusual wood carving of a mermaid that once adorned an ox cart in 19th century Burma. Bullocks and carts were used as a primary means of transportation in Burma, and the carts quite often were decorated with carvings done by a family member or a village carver. Motifs generally were related to The Jataka (stories of the lives of Buddha) or to flowers and animals...

Silk Road Gallery
A singha, a mythical lion-like animal done in high relief, catches the light on the lid of this late 19th century silver betel box from Laos. Betel chewing was part of life in many southeast Asian countries, and offering the components of the chew to guests was essential to hospitality. The boxes used to store and carry the leaves, seeds, lime paste and spices for a quid of betel often were impressive works of art...
Southeast Asian : Metalwork : Pre 1800 item #161386 (stock #02-61)
Silk Road Gallery
A deep lid designed to keep betel leaves fresh fits snugly over the high-sided bottom of this 18th century silver betel box from Laos. An intricate pattern of small curved leaves that resemble jumping fish covers the sides and top of the lid. The top also has four circles of beading and a scalloped edge. A stylized animal in higher relief than the surrounding work centers the top of the lid...
Southeast Asian : Pre 1800 item #162142 (stock #02-59)
Silk Road Gallery
Unusual because of its shape and hinged lid, this 18th century silver container from Laos was used to carry an ingredient--probably a spice--for assembling a quid of betel. The utensils used in betel chewing are among the finest works of art from the southeast Asian countries where betelnut was an important part of the culture. Betel containers demonstrate interesting differences in aesthetic preferences among countries and groups within countries...

Silk Road Gallery
A finely worked dragon coils around the top of the lid of this small silver Vietnamese betel box. A tortoise, a chilin (mythical lion-like animal), a phoenix, and another dragon, all of them icons used throughout Asia, particularly in China, each fill a cartouche on the side of the lid. The bottom surface is centered with the Chinese character for double happiness...
Southeast Asian : Paintings : Pre 1900 item #164475 (stock #57-08)
Silk Road Gallery
From late 19th century Burma, this painting shows a woman of privilege, perhaps a queen, smoking a large cheroot, which is a common practice for Burmese women even today. She is seated on a low divan and holds a young girl, probably her daughter, on her lap...
Southeast Asian : Metalwork : Pre 1700 item #164750 (stock #40-84)
Silk Road Gallery
Still bearing very slight traces of gold leaf, this small 15th century bronze head of Buddha is from Burma's Ava Period (1287-1752). It most likely was commissioned and donated by a family as an act of merit, and was buried under a stupa for centuries. The Burmese of the time were skilled metalworkers. When a bronze Buddha image was cast, even a small one such as this, astrologers were called in to name the most auspicious day and hour for the casting, and monks cleansed the site of evil spirits...
Southeast Asian : Carvings : Wood : Pre 1900 item #165177 (stock #03-18)
Silk Road Gallery
Once studded with brightly colored tiles, this carved teak wood naga was part of a temple roof in Thailand. Laden with symbolism, the naga is said to have protected Buddha from lightning as he meditated under a bo tree. Throughout most of Southeast Asia, naga, sometimes called the dragon of the sea, have been positioned on rooftops and at entrances to protect from natural disasters and ward off evil spirits. When weathered and mounted on a stand such as this 19th century naga, they become exotic...

Southeast Asian : Metalwork : Pre 1900 item #165476 (stock #02-62)
Silk Road Gallery
Nine Chilin march around the perimeter of this heavy silver betel box, an exceptionally fine example of silver craftsmanship from early 19th century Laos. The deep lid slides snugly down over the high sides of the container, and insured that the ingredients stored inside stayed fresh. Another Chilin, a mythical lion-like creature used as a design icon in many Asian countries, centers a roundel in high relief on the top of the lid, encircled with twelve carefully worked flowers and three rows of ...
Southeast Asian : Sculpture : Bronze : Pre 1980 item #167330 (stock #39-12)
Silk Road Gallery
The contrast of the smooth, dark sheen of the face with the light, dusty grey of the hair is a compelling feature of this well cast bronze head. Cast in Thailand about 30 years ago, it is in a style that originated during the Ayutthaya Kingdom (1350-1757), characterized by the full serene face with delicate eyebrows, slightly flared nostrils and well defined lips with the hint of a smile. Tightly curled hair in small spirals covers the head and unisha. The removable filial is an unadorned lotus...
