Large Burmese Wood Carving Buddha’s Life Scenes – a beautifully detailed and intricately hand-carved wooden stele, with scenes related to the Buddha’s enlightenment, leading up to his death with the Buddha is seen lying in Parinirvana (top centre), with his disciples around him, a scene that is common to many of these carvings, especially so in the andagu stone stelea.

The central figure of the enlightened Buddha is seen here seated on a double lotus pedestal supported by two large figures of the running Naga Kings. On the left side of the stele (right side if looking face on) in the second tier is Queen Maya, Siddhartha’s mother, holding onto the Sal tree with one hand, and her left arm around her sister’s shoulder for support, her whilst giving birth. The small Siddhartha is seen on the right of Maya taking his first steps after birth.
