A DEHUA FIGURE OF A 'THOUSAND-ARMED' AVALOKITESVARA
QING DYNASTY, 18TH CENTURY
the deity finely modelled with sixteen arms, the hair partially drawn up in a knotted jatamakuta behind an elaborate foliate crown securing a miniature effigy of Amitabha, with long tresses of hair falling to the shoulders, his principal hands before his chest in uttarabodhi mudra, above a secondary pair in dhyana on his laps, the attendant arms fanning out from the body each grasping a different ritual implement in the hand, wearing a long robe splaying around the body, seated in vajraparyankasana on a lotus bloom springing from swirling waves amongst lotus buds and leaves, the reverse impressed with a double-gourd seal reading Dehua above a square maker's mark
33 cm., 13 in.
