BURMESE SCULPTURE - September 2011
An interesting group of Burmese sculptures have been assembled and brought into the gallery for September. The group includes pieces carved from solid alabaster, forged in bronze, finely carved in wood, or formed in papier mache and lacquer. Dating from the late 18th and 19th centuries, they display the fine creative talents of the craftsmen who were commissioned to make them.

As with all such Buddhist sculpture, the serenity of the countenance is of primary importance, the peaceful and contemplative expression of the face being a defining characteristic of all such sculpture.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Gallery to see our collection.
