Why this is a
Masterpiece

It shows a high level of artistic value of metalware from our Burmese collection.

History of the Object
The rounded and slightly flattened body is decorated with high relief engraving. Multi-figured scenes are prevalent and are reminiscent of the legend of Manohari. These include an episode of the bird girl’s capture with jumping horsemen and Prince Sudhana battling with enemies. Actions which occurred at different times are displayed in the background of the landscape with magnificent tropical vegetation. The dynamism of the composition is emphasized by the expressiveness of poses and gestures, the effects of light and shade and the stylistic comparisons of the suffused glimmering background and glittering figures. All these qualities make it possible to refer to this work as a magnificent example of traditional Burmese art.
