Lot Details
A large gilded bronze figure of Guanyin
18th/19th century
Seated in lalitasana on a Buddhist lion, her hands in karana and varada mudra, with a ruyi in her right hand, her serene face with downcast eyes, framed by pendulous ear lobes, her hair piled into an elaborate coif behind a tiara, wearing a long flowing robe open at the chest to reveal a beaded necklace, the whole on a carved lotus pedestal base, traces of blue and red pigment in the Buddha and the mount's hair, six-character Qian Long mark to the back.
49cm high.
