    Provenance:
    Private Collection, Singapore

    This silver spherical body with continuous repoussé and chased relief show vignettes from the Ramayana. Each scene, which includes Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, and Hanuman and various attendant figures, are beneath cusped arches separated by foliate patterned borders. The form of this bowl is based on a thabeik or begging bowl which was used by monks to ask for food. However, monks in general did not own any silver bowls because it was forbidden for them to touch silver or gold. The base is centered by cartouche of a lion which is surrounded by an incised Burmese inscription.
