Why this is a
Masterpiece

The Buddha has two hand postures. The right hand is the Ahbaya Mudra (Protection from danger posture) and the left hand is the Siwara-Hatta Mudra (Holding the robe posture). It is unique and characteristic of the Pyu Period.

History of the Object
Pyu refers to a collection of city-states and their language found in modern-day Myanmar from about 100 BCE to 840 CE. The history of the Pyu is known from two main historical sources: the remnants of their civilization found in stone inscriptions and the brief accounts of some Chinese travellers and traders, preserved in the Chinese Imperial history.
