UNIQUE GENUINE BURMESE
ANTIQUE BUDDHA STATUES

Many of our Unique, Genuine Antique Buddha statues once sat on an alter in a Burmese monastery, giving solace and a sense of peace to those who knelt before them in prayer.

No modern statue embodies the essence of a genuine antique Buddha statue, nor hold the mysteries of the stories they could tell if they could talk.

This is what makes many in our collection very special

many of our Buddha statues are unique, genuine and some are rare – not made for the tourist industry.

Many older Buddha Statues over their lifetime in a monastery have been considered worthy of restoration by the monks, some are re gilded whilst others may have repairs.

The crafting of a Buddha statue not only expresses the imagination of the Burmese craftsmen, but also identifies the period in time, and the area in which it was made. The most common style which became fashionable during the mid 19th century is the Mandalay Buddha statue with inlaid glass mosaics, floral thayo lacquer decoration, elaborately folded robes and lapel draped over the left shoulder.

Today there are a myriad of shops and garden centres selling Buddha statues in various sizes, many made from resin made to look like stone, whilst others are made from stone or cement made specifically for ornamentation to enhance the ambience of one’s home or garden.

A statue of the Buddha imparts a sense of peace, serenity and harmony wherever they are placed, they are representative of the enlightened Buddha, a reminder to each of us of life’s journey towards this goal.

The opening up of Burma to tourists saw a lot of old Buddha statues leave the monasteries, not because they were stolen, but because monasteries that benefited from the influx of tourists adopted the “out with the old and in with the new” attitude, exchanging many of these beautiful old statues for newly made statues.

In other instances a Buddha statue is often exchanged for a donation from a local person for repairs and maintenance to their monastery, and at the same time, earning them merit, or as we here in Australia would say earning brownie point for the donation.
