Tibeto-Chinese Gilt Bronze Buddha Statue
Jambhala Madzin
God of Wealth
Qing Dynasty, 17th-18th century
H 4in.(10cm), W 3in.(7.8cm), D 2.25in.(5.4cm)

The iconography of this jewel like figure is tentatively identified as the Wealth God Madzin, one of the twelve Jambhalas who dispense riches.

Seated in royal ease (lalitasna) on two finely incised foliate cushions, his right hand holding a vajra-chopper, and left a Nakula Mongoose. The small statue of Madzin is fully gilt in yellow gold, thus imparting a glittering elegance, and evokes the Jambhala's spiritual force as a deity of wealth. Subsequently, there is an inscription of Tibetan characters on the back of the statue, and also it is sealed a with a double vajra engraved on a metal base .These are indications that the statue has been consecrated with a ritual blessing, known as" rab gnas", a process in which a high ranking Lama invites the deity to enter into the completed image. The statue is then believed to contain the actual presence of the deity, the dharmakaya, or Truth Body of the Buddha.

Although Jambhala deities are relatively rare outside of Tibet; more extraordinary is the superb quality of this statue, whcih we believe that it was made in the Imperial workshop in the 17th - 18th century, likely at around the time of the Kangxi (1662-1722), and no later than the QianLong Emperor's reign (1736-1795).
