One Buddha statue was found during excavation research of Pinle (Mongmaw) Pyu ancient city in Myittha, Mandalay Region, according to the Department of Archeology and National Museum (Nay Pyi Taw).
The Buddha statue, which has a height of 6.5 centimetres, is located outside of the old Pyu city in the Excavation Mound No 22 (a) in the southeast of the Kanswe village. It was excavated at a depth of 28 cm (11 inches) in the ground. The Department of Archeology and National Museum has excavated and researched the ancient city every excavation season since the 1978-1979 financial year, and has excavated and researched 23 excavation mounds until the 2022-2023 financial year.
In the 1981-1982 financial year, two silver Buddha statues were unearthed from Excavation Mound No 8, and in 2005, a local found eight gold statues, including eight gold statues, four gold and silver mixed statues, two silver pagodas, and one silver alloy statue at the southeast of Mongmaw village.
All these statues are not significantly different in height, but the hand positions (mudra postures) are slightly different.
The Buddhist architecture and art history of Pinle (Mongmaw) Pyu ancient city has become more detailed, and the archaeological evidence is very important to make the descriptions of ancient history and chronicles more accurate. — ASH/KZL
