Extremely Rare Bronze Eight Scene Buddhist Stele from Burma showing scenes related to the eight great events in the life of the Buddha and seven weeks after his enlightenment.
We believe this stele is possibly an earlier version of the more traditional Burmese Andagu stone stele depicting the eight scenes, the andagu stone carvings were much lighter in weight, and easier to carry on pilgrimages. The weight of this stele would make it highly unlikely that it was an object easily carried on a pilgrimage.
