Antique Burmese Buddhist Kammavaca Pali Manuscript comprises two outer wooden covers and sixteen internal pages or leaves which make this a complete kammavaca Pali manuscript.

The outside covers are incised with Burmese mythological figures and gilded with gold leaf. These covers show kinaree and kinarar, two half bird half human figures. They are a symbol of the Karenni states in Myanmar. They also represent the symbol of true love. The inside covers are made up of lacquered cloth from a monks robe and a thick resinous black lacquer from the tamarind tree is used for the script.
