Antique Chinese Polychrome Wood Statue
Lokapala
Temple Guardian
Circa: Early 19th century
H 36" (91cm.), W 14" (36cm.), D 11" (28cm.)

Condition : missing sword, losses

The Lokapala are the protectors of the four directions. Traditionally they are seen at the entrances to temples as protectors from danger coming from any direction. They express the fundamental power of the faith and protect its indomitable truth.

Here is an impressively tall and striking temple guardian colorfully arrayed in traditional armor with bright scarlet robes painted fancifully with clouds, a light green fringe and an elegant fish-tail drape at the front. He stands impassive, hands clasped before him leaning on his sword, an attribute no longer attached to the piece. The face is romantically dark and placid with large painted eyes and brows. The left foot is supported by a snake, the right by a tortoise, both animals having magical potency to overcome obstacles and to endure throughout time.
