Beautifully carved Burmese Alabaster Mandalay Buddha Statue of the Amarapura period, seated in the lotus position on a low pedestal with hand gesture Bhumisparsa Mudra. The hands on this Buddha are particularly graceful. Very nice detailed carving of the robe in the Mandalay style.
This piece was once gilded – only traces remain, found in the Kyauk-sal area close to Mandalay.
