Hand Carved Statue, Wood Carvings

The Bogyoke Market in Yangon,

one of the most interesting Bazaar in Asia is treasure trove for all kind of wood carvings. There are iron wood carvings, sandalwood carvings, teak wood carvings, rosewood carving, plus jade carvings.

The items are quite affordable and very decorative, only sandalwood is quite expensive, there are no teak wood furniture only smaller items such as mirror frames and smaller sculptures, up to around 70cm. In general they make almost any size and shape when ordered.

There are a couple of other markets and shops elsewhere in Yangon offering the same and have bigger items in the showroom but the diversity and quality in the Bogyoke Aung San Market is probably the best in the country.

The carved items are of a very wide spectrum, there are Buddha heads, Buddha images, dancers in traditional costumes, mythological figures, elephants and other animals plus other decorative items such a great mirror frames.

Myanmar has a long tradition in creating wood arts and crafts.

These special skills need a lot of training and experience; this is usually within a family where the skills are passed from each generation to the next. Carved wooden items are,

beside of the already mentioned, lotus flowers, teak panels with floral designs, village scenes, jungle scenes, there are mythical birds and plenty of Buddha statues.

Other carved items are nats (spirits), buffaloes, tigers, crocodiles and so on. Also many everyday household items are made from wood.

It’s very similar the Thailand but the artwork in Thailand is somehow more artistically and finer since they use more modern tools.

Just look at the teak wood mirror frame, left and the gorgeous elephant carved out from a solid block of teak wood.
