A replica set of the Phaung Daw Oo monastery Buddha images, Inle Lake, Myanmar, 2017. There are five figures, four of vaguely anthropomorphic shape with ears suggested, one of which has a finial protuberance. The fifth image is a rounded figure with a small bump protruding from one side of the upper part. All have images of the animals of the 8 days of the week around the bottom edges. The figures are made of clay mixed with ash and flowers, lacquer, and gold leaf. They are accompanied by silver-coloured metal thrones in the shape of little cups in which each figure sits. The thrones are decorated in repousse technique with the 8 days of the week pattern.
