A Myanmars bowed instrument resembling a Western violin. The example in the collection is a copy of the old form of the instrument. The bow is missing. The bird-shaped ornament at the tip of the peg box is based on a picture which depicts a legendary performance by gods who protect the Buddhist faith.
