|Many Buddha Images in Burmas Art are difficult to divided in each of the age of the art because in Burma is closed country for long and their government manage country is not providing well on document, books or references to tell us clearly about Buddha Images character in each of age of the art.
As what details in age of the art, we can simple divided in 3 ages as follows:
· Pukam Art, this age was the first beginning for Buddha image and got influence directly from India. Details of the art and patterns were build up like real human and can find quite many in the North of Thailand
· Chan Art, this age was about 200 up to 300 years ago, built more awe and revere style. Chan art got both built up Buddha Image in monk dressing or king dressing style. At this moment, many collectors are interested to collect this Chan art because cost per piece is not high when compare with Pukam Art.
· Mandalay Art, This age will be able to see the most in Antique Shop in Thailand and many in the North. Because this art was not too long compare with others and very gentle & beautiful art, can compare with others countries art. Cost of this art is not too high but depending on what you get
some of Buddha Images got decorated with glasses, color stones etc. will make cost of pricing more higher than normal.
