A lovely Burmese Wall Hanging that is quite attractive in design with black lacquer and gold. A gilt frame adds to this distinctive look and makes the wall hanging quite striking. The scene is of a Burmese couple in a pose while dancing. The countries in Asia have always had a very unique style of dance and the use of hands is quite important as they help tell the story. By showing a scene such as this one, we see the intricacies of these beautifully made and lavishly decorated costumes. This is for women as well as men. Jewelry and hair ornaments help to enhance their lovely costumes and make them quite special. Traditions such as clothing and dance help us to understand the cultures of these countries and therefore, they will never be forgotten.
