Old Buddhist Shrine

Almost all Buddhist homes in Burma contain a hpaya-zin, a small box-like home shrine placed on the eastern wall of the house. These shrines house an image of the Buddha where members of the household perform their daily devotions. Made of thickly lacquered and gilded wood this shrine contains a tooled reflective tin interior. In traditional Burmese style, this is decorated with “jewels” which are pieces of cut glass. Side door opens to put Buddha inside.
