This is a beautiful, jewelled, Avalokitesvara Ekadashamukha
Bodhisattva 觀自在菩薩. In Bronze With 24k gold gilt remnants ( cold gilding process. Verified chemically as 24k Gold leaf) with Turquoise inserts I've reset.
Here Avalokitesvara is in its Ekadashamukha form, ( 11 heads and 8 Arms ) and is standing in Samapada with his principle hands in Anjali mudra, others holding scared objects including whip and lotus flower. The deity is dressed in a richly decorated gown with precious jewellery, wears pointed leaf crowns and is framed by celestial bands. Traditionally the first nine faces are peaceful, the tenth is wrathful and the top head shows the portrayal of Buddha Amitabha. The iconography of 11 heads symbolizes teaching to all 10 planes of existence, including Gods and Hell Beings.
All together he wears the crowns, robes and jewellery associated with an enlightened Bodhisattva.
This is a wonderful piece 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.
