An old Burmese man


Price: 400.00

Ref: ANT-091

An early 20thc Burmese votive figure of an old man.
Carved wooden figures showing the various stages of birth, life and death are popular shrine adornments in Burma.
I am not sure that this image really qualifies as a Nat figure, but certainly shows an old man in the later stages of his life ,who has forgone all earthly possessions , and who is close to death and rebirth.
Note the exagerated length of the hands and feet.
Hardwood and paint. 50cm tall
