Antique Chinese Gilt Wood Buddha
Sungzi Kwanyin
Child Granting Bodhisattva
Qing Dynasty, Circa: 19th century
H 14.5" (37cm.), W 6" (15cm.), D 3" (7.5cm.)
Condition: gilt and paint loss

This beautiful Quan Yin, although it is strictly Chinese in its style and details, has an unusual verticality that, along with the stylized foliate forms around the body and head, and the supplicating figure beside Quan Yin, give it a resemblance to Gothic style and Western representations of Mary with the baby Jesus and St.John. A superior work of wood carving, the rounded face is dignified under a high crowned coiffure covered by the drape of her hood which falls languidly into robes that gather and drop, flowing as if stirred by a light breeze. Gathered in her arms is a baby which she holds tenderly--she is a deity prayed to for progeny. At her side is Red Boy on one foot, a frequent companion of Quan Yin, his rescuer. She stands on a lotus leaf afloat upon the ocean, with an ocean dragon holding up her books and water vase. The back of the piece is superbly accomplished as well, with lotus leaves, rocks, pine and bamboo. A nimbus behind Quan Yin is lovingly detailed with leaves, petals and tendrils.
