Beautiful late 18th to early 19th Century Rare Shwebo Period Alabaster Buddha Statue with the right-hand gesture in Maha Karuna Mudra, the gesture of great compassion. The Maha Karuna Mudra is seen mainly in standing-up Buddha images from Myanmar (Burma), and rarely seen in Buddha statues from other Buddhist countries.

The Buddha image is seen here standing on a single lotus pedestal with a four-tiered decorative incised crown on top of an incised band around the forehead. A large, rounded finial sits on top of the crown with decorative carved flanges flanking the head and shoulders. Two large decorative incised earrings hang over the shoulders of each ear, similar to those seen on the Jambhupati-style Buddha statues from Arakan.
