Asian lacquer is created by painting the resin of the Chinese lacquer tree onto boxes, vessels, furniture and statues, where it forms a hard surface that can be polished, carved, decorated and inlaid. With over 200 colour illustrations, this book examines the tradition of Burmese lacquerwork, exploring the methods of production, regional styles and variations, and how the decorative objects reflect Burmese culture in Buddhist devotional items or containers for betel-chewing ingredients.
