Antique Burmese Puppet Head

This is a fine example of a traditional Burmese puppet from the late 19th/early 20th century. The head has been finely carved from wood and painted, with the top hair piece removable. The head has been mounted on a base with a long stem to present the head in a wonderful manner. This is a great item reflective of the rich artistic craft of the Burmese.

Measurements: Head is approx. 6 1/2", with stand it is 15" tall
