Sculpture in the round representing Thagyamin, the king of the 37 Nats in the Burmese cosmology, identified as Sakra.
The gesture of the hands may be attributed to Buddhism, such as the anjali-mudra offerings’ gesture, attributed to the Bodhisattvas who pay tribute to the Buddhas.
Late 18th century - Around 1785
Dimensions without the stand:
Height : 90 cm
Width : 23 cm

o The overall condition is relatively well-preserved.
o With shocks, spalls all over the sculpture.
o Recent white paint (5 to 10 years) on the surface, due to the Burmese cult.
o The backside of the sculpture in the round is polished and remains raw; originally, this sculpture was fixed with tenons on a mural base and was leaning against a wall.
