Antique Chinese Gilt Wood Statue
Kuan Yin
In royal ease
Circa: late 19th century
H 19.5 in.(49cm.), W 10 in.(25cm.), D 8.5 in.(21cm.)

Condition: gilt loss, o.a. good

This large and elegant Kwan Yin is seated in royal ease posture atop a lotus base. Her head is slightly inclined to search out suffering beings whom she comforts and aids. She is the goddess of mercy and compassion, whose kindness cools even the fires of hell. She is seen with a fully opened lotus flower and is adorned with garland, necklaces and earrings, bracelets and anklets, a crown ornamented with wings set onto her hair which is piled up in a high chignon. The statue is carved from a block of fragrant hardwood and was fully gilded at one time; apparently after some damage it was restored and eventually a coat of black paint was applied to the piece, which, over time has eroded to reveal a glittering web of gold sparks and flecks. Carved with refined simplicity and is imbued with peaceful composure.
