  • Antique Burmese Style Standing Wood Mandalay Monk Statue - 90cm/36"

    Measures - (Height) 90cm/36"

    An antique Burmese style Mandalay standing Monk or Disciple of Buddha. Dating to the late 19th, early 20th century. 

    Buddhist art is rich in symbolism, history, and regional variations, each reflecting the unique cultural and spiritual heritage of its origin.

    One such distinctive and revered form of Buddhist art is the Mandalay style Buddhist monk statue, depicted here holding an alms bowl.

    Originating from Mandalay, Myanmar’s last royal capital, these statues represent more than mere artistic expression; they embody the principles of Buddhism and the profound reverence for monastic life.

    This enlightened Disciple of Buddha, is remarkable for his realistic yet delicate delineation of the limbs and the bejewelled robe which seems to cling to the body. The garment (sanghati) covers both shoulders.

    A very naturalistic succession of wavy folds on the surface of his body revealing the soft contours of the body underneath. His face is handsome with a slight smile and straight nose. 

    The Disciple has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. 

    These statues reflect the Theravada Buddhist tradition, which emphasizes the monastic way of life as a path to enlightenment. Shown here holding an alms bowl, symbolizing their commitment to a life of humility, discipline, and devotion. 

    As is traditional with later Mandalay pieces his robes are elaborate, with the folds of the robes cascading down his torso.

    The Mandalay style Buddhist monk statue, holding an alms bowl, is a profound expression of Buddhist art and spirituality. Originating from the culturally rich city of Mandalay, these statues encapsulate the ideals of monastic life and the path to enlightenment.

    Through their elegant simplicity, expressive features, and symbolic elements, they inspire devotion, convey spiritual teachings, and preserve a cherished cultural heritage.

    In a world often driven by materialism and distraction, the Mandalay style monk statue stands as a timeless reminder of the values of humility, discipline, and inner peace. Whether encountered in a temple, a monastery, or a private home, these statues continue to inspire and guide practitioners on their spiritual journey, embodying the enduring legacy of Buddhist art and philosophy.

    The peaceful countenance of this Disciple exudes harmony.

    The carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly.

    Sculpture is in good condition for it's age. A serene and meditative piece.

    Provenance: Ex- private UK Collection.

Let Us Help You Find The Piece You Desire

Thank you so very much! Well, I needed Buddha here -- and I certainly now have Buddha here in many ways and many forms -- with thanks to HDAsianArt. Each statue you've sent has worked out very well -- each in its own way -- each combined in settings with other art pieces -- each has blended well -- finishing off different areas of my home -- and all communicates well to tell a story of different aspects of my life. I intentionally chose your pieces -- to get away from the "norm" of beautiful gild Buddhas that everyone has -- your pieces are quite unique -- and a bit more "real" -- which serves my purpose well. So, thank you.
