Chinze or Chinthe  is a stylized leogryph (lion-like figure) depicted in Burmese iconography and Myanmar architecture, especially used as pair of guardians flanking the entrances of Buddhist pagodas and kyaung (or Buddhist monasteries). Nowadays, it's one of the most recognizable symbol of Myanmar.

In Myanmar, the lacquering tecnique was introduced during the V Century. The lacquered artifacts of Myanmar usually take on a red, green and yellow color that stands out from the black background, and have golden decorations. The subjects traditionally depicted are court scenes, the tales of Jātaka and the signs of the Burmese zodiac.
