A heavy Ming Bronze Guanyin Buddha with eyes downcast, hands locked in dhyana meditation mudra, her hair is swept up into an elegant chignon, set under an Amitabha Buddha floral crown, she wears a sharply defined necklace, and dressed in a sumptuous long robes with sinuous symmetry, alluding a concentric radiance of sublime countenance as in the traditional depiction of Guanyin since the Tang in the 7th century.

With her childlike form and benevolent grace, many characteristics unique to authentic Ming Buddha are clearly evident in this work. Most noticeably, the proportions of the statue are specific to the period, with a large head and stout figure, simplicity, and voluminous stately appearance, her silhouette is completed by three rows of upturned lotus petals, which circumventing the pedestal atop a perforated oval-shaped filigree. The statue is completed with thorough integrity. There is hardly any casting fault but an accompanying pleasing essence of age. In areas of abrasion and gilt loss, the base color of the metal has turned to a natural deep umber over time, overlaid with random flashes of red lacquer and crusts of oxidation between the folds and rims; and so forging a delicate unity of flowing simplicity, and the hierarchic dignity of sanctity imbued through the centuries. With superb artistry, this gorgeous Guanyin has retained its spiritual essence of the beloved Bodhisattva of Compassion. Authenticity guaranteed.
