Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a unique stone sculpture from the Bagan Period.

History of the Object
This footprint was discovered in the Lawkananda Pagoda. It is now displayed in the room of the Bagan Archaeological Museum in the section Arts and Crafts from the Bagan Period. In Bagan, only two Buddha footprints were found. The footprint of the Lawkananda pagoda is displayed in the Bagan Archaeological Museum and another one is now in the vestibule of the Ananda temple. Both are of the same period. Footprints from the Bagan Period are different from those in later periods. For instance, from among the 108 auspicious symbols, symbol No. 30 in the footprints of the Bagan period had the horse symbolizing the sun while in later periods it was the peacock.
