Catalogue Note

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the Samantabhadra Buddha arises from the early Nyingma Tantric literature of the Guhyagarbha Tantra. He is typically depicted naked, with a Buddha Appearance, hands in meditation gesture, legs in vajra posture, embracing the consort Samantabhadri, their union representing the blissful essence of the Truth Body of all Buddhas. For a thangka depicting Samantabhadra and Samantabhadri, see Marylin M. Rhie and Robert A. F. Thurman, The Sacred Art of Tibet, London, 1991, pl. 430, no. 51A.
