Very Beautiful and Large Buddha Figurine taking the Earth as witness (Bhumisparsha Mudra), Ava, 19th century.

The technique used here is that of dry lacquer, or hollow lacquer, named man-yun. Lacquer is applied on a sculpture in clay, once the lacquer paste is completely dry, the clay of the figurine was removed, hollowed out. Then, more layers of lacquer are applied, as well as gold foil. This technique was very widespread in Burma since the 18th century, because it enabled to easily transport statues, which were very light.

This figurine measures 79 cm high. Please note the and very serene expression of the face.
