This is a beautiful, jewelled, gilt bronze (fire gilding/hand-chased ormolu gilding technique) Sino Tibetan, Large Ornate Throned Buddha, with many semi precious gemstones settings. It is made in three parts that can be disassembled.

With a radiant smile he is seated cross legged on a lotus base decorated with a figures from a Buddhist story. He holds an Alms Bowl in his hands. With curled hair, he wears the Dragon Robes of an enlightened Buddha.

There are many auspicious Buddhist Symbols, Dieties and Mythical Animals, including dragons, guardian Foo Dogs at the front of the throne, and Garuda at the peak of the elaborate Manora.

The base of both the throne and buddha are sealed with a copper consecreation plates, with a vajra bolt symbol stamp on each.

I've carefully reset the empty jewellery settings with 32 quality precious and semi precious gemstones as would have been originally used ( I was a successful and acclaimed Jewellery Designer in Soho, London in the 1990s).

Red Coral x 1

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

Please see the photos for its appearance under different lighting conditions.
