AS208: Burmese Boundary Post

Boundary marking post from highland Burma. This beautifully weathered and eroded post still shows the quality of the original carving even though much of the surface has been eroded away by years of weather exposure in the jungle. The image of an elephant with a palanquin full of people surmounted by a figure riding a horse is still clearly seen, and the hard wood is quite stable.     

54 including the base, 9 wide and 5 deep. 19th/early 20th century.    ....$3500.00
