A Dehua figure of Guanyin
Qing dynasty, He Chaozong mark
The deity seated in the posture of royal ease, the hair worn in knotted tresses that fall across the shoulders and partially swept-up into a topknot above the serene face with downcast eyes and a raised urna between the brows, dressed in voluminous robes falling in folds around the body opening at the chest to expose a ruyi pendant necklace, the left hand resting on the drawn up knee, the right hand holding a scroll, apocryphal Xuande mark.
19.6cm high.
