Burmese Marble Ava Buddha Statue – often these statues undergo repainting or re-gilding a few times over their lifetime in the monasteries, very often by amateur monk would be artists as this one has, the face has been beautifully re-painted, looks recent, but the body was probably re-painted some time ago with a coloured lacquer.
