Country Group: South and Southeast Asia (Thailand, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam)
Very early, rare, and very beautiful solid cast Burmese Monk, likely from the end of the Pyu/beginning of the Pagan period, and in the range of 1000 years old. This special type has incised eyes that show influence from early Pala. Stands 7 inches tall.
Thank you Denis (a very knowledgeable collector who has a Tara figure with closely related eye treatment that was excavated in the area of Pagan.)
