    burmese lacquerware offering vessel

    Burma
    Mid 20th century
    Height: 39 cm

     
    This covered offering vessel is called a “Hsun Ok”. The Hsun Ok is a large stupa shaped vessel (top of a Buddhist temple). This is decorated in the shewezawa traditional pattern. Burmes ogres surround the piece.
     
    This would be owned by well to do families and used for taking cooked food offerings to the monasteries.
    This can also be used in place of meditation.
     
    The shape of the stupa represents Buddha with various parts symbolizing aspects of the Buddha. Additionally, the stupa may represent the five purified elements. The base is the earth, the hemispherical dome/vase represents water, the conical spire represents fire. The upper point of the spire represents air.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.

    Hi I am Willian Mitchell Antiques.

    I have a variety of items from different corners of the globe. My work
    as an English teacher has taken me to Asia, Africa and the Middle
    East. It is this travel that set me on the road to antiques and
    collecting. Shops, outdoor markets, private homes, and individuals
    have been the source of my collection. I am especially attracted to
    illustrated textiles and manuscripts and have several on offer. I have
    even more of these from my recent travel to India. I continue to love
    the hunt and the interesting people I meet along the way.
