Good condition. Please see the description and photos.

Period: Late 20th century
Title of artwork: Large Jewelled Padmapani Lokeshvara Tara Bodhisattva -Gilt Bronze Turquoise and Coral -Sino Tibetan
Dimensions: 13×4×6 in

This is a beautiful, jewelled, large, gilt bronze ( fire gilt technique ) Sino Tibetan, Standing, Padmapani Lokeshvara,Tara Bodhisattva, with gem settings.

She she stands on a lotus throne, two lotus flowers and stems at her side. Her hands hold the stems in benelovent mudras. She wears the clothes and jewellery of an enlightened Bodhisattva.
On her crown to the front, a small Buddha sits with a Coral settings on his crown of his head. The Tara has a Turquoise on the crown of her head.

The base is sealed with a copper consecreation plate with a vajra bolt symbol stamp.

I've reset the empty jewellery settings with 14 similar size, quality Turquoise and Coral gemstones ( I was a successful and acclaimed Jewellery Designer in Soho, London in the 1990s)

GEMS:
Turquoise x 8
Red Coral x 6

Although typical of pieces from the early Ching Dynasty, I believe this is from the late 20th, or possibly early 21st century. I dont believe its antique.

A delightful Collectors piece, powerful Buddhist Altar statue, gift, or powerful interior design statement.

Stored under Buddhist conditions in my meditation room, in my Buddhist Retreat studio.

( Please see the photos for its appearance under different lighting conditions, and its condition before gem resetting )

    Leider ist die Statue preiswerte Importware aus Japan und nicht das Geld wert, dass ich bezahlt habe.
    Die Ware war gut verpackt und ist unbeschädigt angekommen
