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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
