Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a very fine and rare sculpture.

History of the Object
The statue was cast in alloy called Pyinsaloha meaning a compound of five metals namely gold, silver, bronze, lead and tin. The upper lip of the statue’s mouth is thin and long and the lower lip thick and short. The neck is rather broad at the base bearing three lines. The robe is curved in lines. Its fingers are like real human fingers. They are not of the same length, as is usual the case with similar statues.
