This seated Burmese figure captures a musician in eternal song. The wooden figure is hand-carved with a seated posture, legs crossed and arms outstretched to hold her instrument, most likely a flute or double-reeded horn. The musician is depicted in fine attire, with an intricate belt, sash, and jewelry inlaid with glass sequins. Originally lavished with gilt pigments atop red lacquer, the figure has faded to a gently worn finish and softer, orange-red hue.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
