This 19th century Burmese temple carving, being a verticle element, is probably part of the upper structure of the temple - not the main spire, but an important decorative element in the upper area of the temple. It begins at the top with a floral shaped element, comes to a peoney, then comes down to other floral shaped elements, then a Buddhist deity in the position of reverance and devotion with the hands together and the typical Souteast Asian spire above the head. This wooden carving was obviously part of a temple that burned or was being rebuilt, and this element was partially burned before it was retrieved. The insides still show traces of the burnt charcoal surface. This carving would most likely have been painted bright colors originally. The paint and gesso are all gone at this point.
