Carving, Myanmar (formerly Burma), South East Asia

Teak sculpture, in raised relief carved from a single piece of wood. It is possibly a statue of a Nat. Nats are a group of deities, including spirits of trees, rivers, lakes and ancestors. They are said to enjoy a peaceful existence and can become angry if due respect is not given them. In Myanmar today many people worship Nats alongside the official religion of Buddhism. This sculpture was possibly part of a larger building; possibly part of a pagoda wall or door frame. TRURI: 1950.46.5
