Vasudhara
distemper on cloth
Nepal
The voluptuous six-armed female goddess of wealth seated in lalitasana with her right foot resting on an upturned kalasha vase, holding a Prajnaparamita text, stems of rice, a kalasha and a triratna jewel emblem, seated on an elaborate tiered lion throne with kirtimukha torana, flanked by green Vajrapani and red Lokeshvara each with a flywhisk at the right shoulder, crowned and bejewelled female figures above carrying golden offering bowls, with their male companions emptying sacks of offerings, jewels and auspicious emblems to fill the red space behind the principal deities, a register of Buddhas above, a family of donors below and a Vajracharya performing rituals, each group flanking the Chakravartin.

The painting is stylistically comparable to the Jucker Siddhi Manjusri of 1409, lot 1, the shrines set against a similar scrolling background. Compare another Vasudhara paubha in the Zimmerman Family Collection, dated 1403, with similar upper register configuration with the deities against dark scrollwork, and Vasudhara seated in very similar posture with head gently inclined to her right; see Pal, 1991, p. 72, no. 34.
