Buddha & Worship Images

Tales and teachings from the Life of Buddha (‘Jataka’ stories) and the 550 former lives of the Buddha, have provided much of the subject-matter and outlets for expression in the art of Burma.

Theravada Buddhism (as practiced by the Burmese) emphasizes the need for every man to seek his own way to salvation by following the precepts, meditating and performing acts of charity to improve his karma in future existences.

Burmese craftsmen were anonymous and were expected to follow various rules and formulae when creating a Buddhist icon – failure to observe established norms would render the object unsuitable for use in worship and deem it to be sacrilegious. Initially, artisans closely copied imported models, however, over time the Burmese craftsmen showed genius for assimilating foreign influences and blending them with local style, so that works of art became unmistakably ‘Burmese’ in spirit.
