Another classic Shan image.  It has a slightly darker patina than the picture, a dark green brown;  I lightened it slightly to show the detail better.  It has fine inscribing, and areas of developing cuprite which establish the age.  In Burma now, there simply are no buddha images left that are not in temples, museums or private collections.  In a relatively short time, there will be no more for collectors to buy.  It stands 15 inches high, and condition is excellent.  If you like these classic images, do not wait much longer to buy them.  $1800
