Description
 
A super ancient stone bead with the rare sun ray design. A lovely looking bead with a central equatorial stripe and 12 lines extending horizontally across the body. This design is often compared to a 'rail track' or the stitching on a rugby ball. If you view the side profile you can see this decoration actually forms a sun-like design. The actual sun is the decorated circle around the holes and the sun rays are the 12 lines that radiate outwards.

This bead has remained in a private collection since the 1980s
Condition: Very good with minor weathering commensurate with age.
Origin: Burma, Pyu Tircul
14 mm
