Antique Burmese Kamavaca Manuscript with Metal Leaves has wooden gilded end covers inscribed with mythological beings from Burmese myth and folklore.  This kamavaca comes with covering and intricately handwoven sasigyo. This kamavaca is a little narrower than the more traditional Burmese kamavaca which is usually between 14 and 15 cm wide and made with the cloth of a monks robe stiffened with lacquer.

This Kamavaca has been well used as can be seen by the wear on the front covers and edges of the pages and may indicate that it is older than we have the knowledge to tell, most of these kamavaca don’t have any reference to dates unless is written inside the front cover, or that it may have been a special kamavaca used by a head monk.
