Mandalay Period Early 19th Century Deva Statue

One of a set of four Mandalay Period early 19th century Deva Nats from a Burnt monastery in Myanmar (Burma). Made from solid teak wood. This Deva statue is known as Ta-Kyar Min Nat or Thanga Min Nat, the highest ranking of all Burmese Nats, a celestial being whose nature is different to all other nats.

This is a rare and original piece from Mandalay with a hole in the base where a relic would have been placed, the nat is holding a conch shell (eankha) water or wealth symbol, especially prized when the central aperture turns to the right.
