Why this is a
Masterpiece

The motive from a decorative point of view, achieves an unknown richness.

History of the Object
Originally a Buddha was seated under the naga, but the Buddha image has disappeared. In the latter half ot the 19th Century Vientiane began to return to life and little by little temples were restored. Only the Ho Phra Kaew remained in rubble. Prince Suvanna Phuma restored Ho Phra Keo with the assistance of the French colonial administration and the rebuilding was completed in 1942. It was decided that it would be made into a museum. In the meantime many objects had been brought to the Louis Finot Museum in Hanoi and it was not until 1953 that the last object was returned. This piece has still the documentation number of the Hanoi museum.
