             Chinthey, Thai/ Burmese Mythological Lion Plaque in Aged Terra Cotta

6.5" Tall x 11" Wide x 1.5" Deep

Chinthe is a highly stylized leogryph or lion-like creature, commonly depicted in Burmese iconography and Myanmar architecture, especially as a pair of guardians flanking the entrances of Buddhist pagodas and kyaung (or Buddhist monasteries). The chinthe is featured prominently on most paper denominations of the Burmese kyat. In Burmese, chinthe is synonymous with the Burmese word for "lion."

It is made of clay, aged for more than six months in a moist environment to create the patina.
