   The art of making “laureate” prospered in the period 9 AD - 13 AD, where artisans looked at the murals at the ancient pagodas, primarily in ‘Bagan’, the ancient capital and home of some of the world’s most amazing Buddhist temples.  Bagan is where most Burmese Lacquer ware is produced as it is located near the Shan State, where resin bearing trees grow (Thitsi trees), softwood and bamboo are easily available - along the Ayeyarwady River.
