Rare Burmese Dry Lacquer Head of Buddha, Mandalay Style & Period, Circa 1853-1885.
Description: A rare and magnificent Buddha Head Fragment, rendered in traditional 'Mandalay' style, hollow, made of dry lacquer and cloth, a technique used in Burma called'Thayo', which is a type of relief-moulded lacquer. The actual process, still well-preserved and visible inside the head, entailed the use of several layers of lacquer soaked cloth, applied by hand over a sandy-clay core, dried, before a malleable layer of lacquer, which is a mixture of sap from theMelanorrhoea Usitate tree, teak sawdust, and straw ash, was formed as a putty, and used in creating the basic facial shape, and later after drying, the finer facial features and detailed hair curls, were also formed in Thayo. When the lacquer image hardened, the inner clay core was removed. Typically associated with 19th century and earlier influences of the 'Ava' style, the head is sensitively modeled with softly contoured face and serene contemplative expression, with arched eyebrows bowed high towards the forehead, set above heavy-lidded downcast eyes, small mouth, bow-shaped with an insipid smile, a broad treatment of the nose, and prominent ears. A finely molded band separates the forehead from the hairline, modeled with remnants of inlaid glass. The head is covered in rasp-like hair curls, surmounted by a domed ushnisha carved with a hole at the top where a stylized lotus bud finial once fit, ( which was a separate piece, called a 'Kecil' (pinnacle), carved of teakwood and sat in the sculpted hole on the top of the head). The surface has a beautifully aged gilded patina, over the originally varnished dark black lacquer pigment, with traces of reddish-maroon paint throughout.
Hollow lacquer Buddha images were made by a group of village's just outside Ye-U township in the Monywa District, approximately 136 kilometres north west of Mandalay. Many of the craftsman were not professional artisans, but farmers, who made Buddha images in their spare time, during the cooler searon from November to February, providing the best conditions for drying both the clay core and the lacquer. One man could make thirty to thirty-five imges per season. Most were being reported as being sold to the Shan States.
