Authentic Burmese Ava Period Shan Marble Buddha Statue dated between the 17th and 18th Century, seated on a single incised and painted lotus pedestal with remnants of original colour, and painted fingernails. As in many statues of this age, it has received a new coat of gilding along the way. On the head is a small bulbous pointed finial that sits on top of a small rounded usnisha. The eyes are downcast, with painted pupils and high-arched eyebrows.

Buddha statues from the Shan state are highly diverse, both in dress style and facial features, which is little wonder, considering the diversity among the various ethnic groups within the Shan state, and the fact that they share borders with China, Laos and Thailand.
