This is a beautiful, jewelled, antique, small Avalokitesvara Ekadashamukha
Bodhisattva, from the Qing Dynasty 清朝. (1700-1800s).
Here Avalokitesvara is in its Ekadashamukha form, and is standing in Samapada with his principle hands in Anjali mudra, upper and lower left hand holds a lotus blossom. The deity is dressed in a richly decorated gown with precious jewelry, wears pointed leaf crowns and is framed by celestial bands. At the upper left shoulder is a deer fur ( the head is just visible) Traditionally the first nine faces are peaceful, the tenth is wrathful and the top head shows the portrayal of Buddha Amitabha.
Made in two parts. With 11 heads, 8 arms and hands, he wears the crowns, robes and jewellery of an enlightened Bodhisattva.
This is a wonderful, genuine antique for the collector, gift, altar, or an impressive interior design statement.

I originally trained as a Sculptor then Photographer in the 1980s. In the 90s I had a successful career as a young jewellery Designer In London. I produced collections for Boules, Miss Selfridge, and the Designer outlet Jess James in Soho. With an active interest in Buddhism and Taoism since my teens, I've been collecting Buddhist and Oriental Art since 2003. I source these pieces directly from Dealers in the UK, USA, Europe, and Japan. I've been personally on buying trips to the Far East. I restore lost gems to those bronzes with empty settings, and restore wooden Japanese Antiques where pieces are lost or broken. Many of pieces end up in private collections, altars, and even Buddhist Retreats and Temples. I consider both my restorations, and my collecting, as a meditation within the Karma Yoga tradition.
