GUANYIN    

CHINA, LATE MING, 17TH CENTURY
Bronze
13 in (33.5 cm) high

NON-EXPORTABLE UNREGISTERED ANTIQUITY


Seated gracefully on a double lotus base in vajrasana, this late Ming dynasty Guanyin's right hand is in varadamudra, the gesture of blessing. His left hand is in vitarkamudra, the gesture suggestive of a discussion. Deep in meditation, the eyes of the bodhisattva of compassion are downcast and his expression is calm. The crown adorned by Guanyin has Amitabha positioned at the centre. His fine robe parts at his chest to reveal a necklace, indicative of a royal lineage.
