Wood deteriorates quickly in the jungle of Myanmar due to moisture and insects. Which is why temple statues are regularly repainted. Maintaining a Buddha statue is good for karma, so monks with a bucket of paint are often a little overzealous. This is exactly what happened here. As can be seen well from the face.
Beautiful authentic Buddha with a fine appearance. Buddha touches the earth with his right hand, to show her his enlightenment. With his left hand he indicates that he is meditating. He is one with himself and one with the cosmos.
Take good care of this statue with a little sacrifice now and then and you will also receive good karma.
