Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a Masterpiece because it is one of the earliest writings of Myanmar literature.

History of the Object
Prince Razakuma, son of King Kyansittha had the text on this stone written in about 1113. Although he had missed the chance of succeeding to the throne because King Kyansittha had chosen his grandson Alaungsithu as his immediate successor, Raza Kuma harboured no ill will or grudge against his father. He even showed his love and gratitude. The inscription is evidence of it. The stone was discovered at the foot of the Myazedi pagoda near Myinkaba village to the south of old Bagan. This stone has four sides on which are inscribed Pali, Pyu, Mon and Myanmar script, all recording the same event. It was one of the earliest writings discovered so far in the history of Myanmar literature.
