Burmese Carved Ox Horn Boat
carved figural boat; horn, mother or pearl inlay
In the mythology of ancient Burma, it’s said that a great boat in the form of a makara ferries the souls of the dead to the afterlife. Five bells are perched on the giant water lizard’s back, and a person has the time until the fifth bell tolls to argue the case for their virtue in life. If the makara judges them worthy, they will be allowed to cross into paradise; if not, the makara will devour their eternal soul.
