magnificent Tibetan gilt bronze Cosmological Maitreya standing in tribhanga, bare-chested
with a princely necklace, and draped in a chiffon that accentuates the contour
of his figure; his right hand is in varada mudra, left hand holding a bit of cloth,
eyes downcast in a serene meditative expression, with straight hair that tied
into a raised bun that resembles a stupa. Attributed to 19th century, the statue
is in excellent condition.
