Pandaw (Stucco relief)

The art of Pantaut (stucco sculpture) means a handicraft of making decorative floral designs in relief with stucco. The artisans make the figures of lions, dragons and floral designs with stucco. Myanmar traditional stucco carving emerged before Bagan period and it improved in Bagan, Ava, Amarapura and Yadanapon period. According to the historical records, stucco works were very famous in Bagan period. Stucco works of Bagan period have detailed decorations. After Bagan we had stucco carvings of mid-Konbaung or Amarapura period, which are Burmese in style and very fine. The buds and flowers in bunches in the centre of the portal at U Kin-danke are unique. Menu’s brick monastery at Ava stands magnificently today with wooden pyathad durrets above it. The great building itself is a work of art to command our admiration.
