Why this is a
Masterpiece

The figurines are important as a record of accomplished artists of the Pyu Period

History of the Object
There are five figurines of Pyu musicians and theatrical performers. One is a flute player, one a drummer, one a cymbal clapper and the fourth a dancer. The fifth figure which is half the size of the first four looks like a dwarf clown carrying a sack on its back. They are well dressed and bedecked with ornaments. All of them assume most animating postures in consonance with the performances they are engaged in.
