Maitreya, the Buddha of future ages is the successor to Shakyamuni the historical Buddha. The Maitreya is thought to embody loving kindness and is seen to be a friend to all.

This early 19th century Tibetan gilt bronze statue of the deity is gracefully arched in the “tribhanga” position: a standing posture in which the figure is oppositely curved at the waist and neck to form a gentle "S" shape.

There is a youthful suppleness to this figure that is accented by the intricate detail of the ornamentation. The subtle folds of cloth and adornment shape and frame the body. A fertile lotus that arches up from the left hand compliments the right hand that is poised in the Vitaka Mudra, the gesture of debate. The midnight blue hair, the coloration of the eyes and rosy polish of the lips expands the hues of this statue’s loving, beatific countenance.

Several added layers of detail on the lips of the lotus petals upon which Maitreya stand add depth. This polished masterful sculpture combines a deep presence with the sweet nectar of well-being. (SD)
