The Burmese Repoussé Silver Bowl is beautifully made by embossing and engraving episodes from either Jataka tales, or previous lives of the
Buddha, that are familiar to the people of Burma. The shape is inspired by the alms bowls of the Buddha and his monks that were used to gratefully
accept offerings of rice or food for the morning meal.
This type of elegant object was used for many utilitarian and decorative purposes in aristocratic Burmese homes and greatly admired and collected by the English Victorian civil service stationed there. The main pictorial scene is a band of repeating leaves, often acanthus leaves, which extend to the underside of the bowl. This bottom band acts as a visual
ground on which the depictions rest on.
The stories depicted come from several sources including: the Ramayana, the Zodiac and folk tales. The Ramayana is a Sanskrit epic which, in the Burmese version, tells the story of the previous lives of Buddha. Although there are many stories contained within the Ramayana, Burmese
silversmiths usually depicted one of ten primary legends.
