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 is depicted. She has many Turquoise settings.
The base is sealed with a copper consecreation plate with a vajra bolt symbol stamp.
I've reset the empty jewellery settings with 11 similar size, quality Turquoise gemstones, and a Garnet ( I was a successful and acclaimed Jewellery Designer in Soho, London in the 1990s)
Turquoise x 10 (3 -4 mm Cabochons. Natural Persian untreated hand cut . Mohs Hardness scale. 5-6)
Garnet x 1 ( 2mm. Cabochon. African. Mohs Hardness scale 7)
(NO PLASTIC OR GLASS )
Although typical of pieces from the early Ching Dynasty, I believe this is from the late 20th, or possibly early 21st century. Please judge for yourself.
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.
