Burmese Lacquer Container No. 2

Yun-de is what the Burmese refer to as lacquerware. It is inherently beautiful, but ultimately very utilitarian. It'’s light, flexible, waterproof, and hard. The many layers of lacquer resist mildew and polish to a smooth luster. During community holidays and celebrations people would gather at the temple holding these lacquerware pieces filled with their family’s contribution of food. It is also used to store valuables in.
