Burmese Craftsmen Making Buddha Sculptures, c.1900
A group of four Burmese craftsmen are making large seated Buddha sculptures. They work underneath an open shelter with a thatched roof in a jungle clearing. There are tools and building materials on the forest floor. The Buddha sculptures have a gilt finish and are depicted in the traditional bhumisparsha mudra ('earth touching' mudra).
