Dragon-shaped Wood Carving presented by Burma Tourism Company in 1978


This wood carving that we are looking at is the gift presented by Burma Tourism Company during its visit to Guilin. They are related to the dragon and phoenix totem of China, one of which is male and the other is female. They both hide their heads and expose their tails and the two of them both have a dragon head and a phoenix tail. The entire dragon body seems like a cloud, which seems to be ready to take off once it wakes up. The dragon and phoenix combination has always been a common auspicious image in China. This dragon-shaped wood carving presented by Myanmar to us has not only demonstrated the artist's rich imagination in modeling, but also recorded the information about national integration.
