A rare Burmese Black Stone Carving of Mithuna Couple, the romantic couple seen in many Indian temples, although not 100% certain. The Mithuna couple is depicted in wall carvings and sculptures in many parts of India. The couple is often seen embracing or standing together with arms around each other, they symbolize harmony and companionship, with all of the creation emanating from the union of a couple.

We refer to this stone carving as Burmese, mainly because that is where we acquired it and the figures have similarities to some of the figures seen in carvings and wall paintings in Pagan temples.
