This beautiful marble statue is ingrained with tiny gold and silver specks which these photos have failed to capture. It is a vigorous standing Buddha radiates with detached spiritual expression, and may well be an excellent example of Qing stone carving. The statue represents the Future Buddha Maitreya, his face is broadly handled, he appears to be intensely focused, with a gentle smile that is both warm and charmingly human. The Buddha's body is slightly elongated, he stands on a double lotus pedestal, right hand raised in a gesture of no fear (abhaya mudra), and the left in the gesture of charity (varada mudra), wearing a tightly fitted robe, carved in round and stylistically contrasted with angular pleats. In spite of its small size, this marble statue possesses a monumental grandeur usually belonging to larger stone carvings.
