Property from Various Owners
A large gilt lacquered wood figure of a seated Bodhisattva
Qing dynasty
Her hood loosely covering a high crowned chignon above a serene expression above a chest adorned in elaborate jewels, the hands rendered to support a now lost implement resting upon the legs leisurely held in the rajalalitasana posture of royal ease, carved to sit upon a now lost throne or plinth.
26 1/2in (67.5cm) high

Footnotes

  • One possible missing object for this figure's hands could have been a child, identifying this as the Songzi Guanyin or Avalokitesvara giver of sons. A slightly smaller gilt-lacquered wood Guanyin dated to the 17th/18th century was offered in our London New Bond Street show rooms as lot 245 in their sale 23237 of 12 May 2016. That figure shared a similar peaceful expression and similarly rendered jeweled raiment as the present lot.
