If you explore and study the design of ancient artworks of Myanmar, you would find styles that closely resemble those of the “west” such as; India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan and those are approximately resemble those of the “East” such as; China, Kampuchea, Thailand. There has been an interflow of art and culture among nations as with religion, trade, or warfare exchange. History records instance of such an exchange. Although some styles look like those of the west and east, you can say they are a small minority. But, Myanmar artists made their creation with adaptation to suit the native culture and aesthetic taste. If you make a comparison of the design like lions, Kinnari, Sphinx or manussiha, costumes of devas, Sakra, Brahma, and floral patterns, with their foreign counterparts, you would see how far they differ and if you study the same design, you will see the changes that take place each stage.
