Footnotes

  • Likely made for a personal or portable shrine (gau), this charming silver figurine possibly depicts the Taglung abbot Sanggye Yarjon (1203-72), who significantly expanded the monastery's facilities and religious artifacts, commissioning gold and silver sacred images and building Taglung's Great Shrine Hall (mchod khang chen mo). Further details of his biography are available at treasuryoflives.org.

    The small sculpture brims with character, with sharp features, well-defined patchwork robes, and a smiling face. A related copper alloy figure was recently sold by Bonhams, New York, 13 March 2017, lot 3021.

    此尊造像小巧但富於魅力,應為私人佛堂或嘎烏盒所造。其所刻畫的可能為達隆寺第三任主持桑傑雅俊(1203-72年)。桑傑雅俊在任期間大規模地擴張了寺院設施及宗教收藏,包括委託製造了大量金銀造像,並為寺院建成大佛堂(mchod khang chen mo)。更多生平資料可參見treasuryoflives.org。

    造像的人物刻畫突出個性,其面部特徵逼真並略帶微笑,袈裟之拚縫紋細緻清晰。另一尊相關的造像於2017年3月13日在邦瀚斯紐約售出(拍品3021號)。
