Huge Buddha Statue in Lacquer from the Region of Sham, Burma

Huge Buddha statue in lacquer, in the mudra of the bhu?mispars?a, formerly gilt, from the region of Sham, Burma, late 18th century, Myanmar.
The bhu?mispars?a "earth witness" mudra of Gautama Buddha is one of the most common iconic images of Buddhism. It depicts the Buddha sitting in meditation with his left hand, palm upright, in his lap and his right hand touching the earth. It represents the Buddha asking Pr?thivi, the devi of the earth, that she witness his enlightenment.
