A GILT COPPER ALLOY FIGURE OF PALDEN LHAMO
QING DYNASTY, 18TH CENTURY

清 十八世紀 銅鎏金吉祥天母像

Provenance:
With Claude de Marteau, Brussels, by 1970s

During the Qing dynasty, Palden Lhamo was popularly worshipped as both a Protector of the Dharma and Goddess of Fortune. Here, she rides atop a mule through an ocean of blood, her fiery hair symbolizing her wrathful aspect.

See two closely related examples from the Qianlong period, published in Buddhist Statues in Yonghegong, 2002, pl. 112, and Chang and Hsu (eds.), Buddhist Art from Rehol, Taiwan, 1999, p. 108, fig. 36.
