The bodhisattva Maitreya is identified by the hand gesture of turning the wheel of law (dharmachakra mudra), the customary water vessel (kundika) resting on the flower at his left shoulder and the wheel of law (dharmachakra) at the right shoulder. The painting is probably one of a set depicting the Eight Great Bodhisattvas.
The work corresponds with Qing period paintings of similar style and composition featuring a single deity in minimal landscape with the sun and moon symbols above, cf. a large Qing dynasty White Tara painting sold at Christie’s New York, September 12, 2018, lot 314, and a White Tara painting at Yonghegong, see Li Lixiang, Yonghe Lamasery, Beijing, 2008, p. 31. A set of gilt sandalwood standing sculptures depicting the Eight Great Bodhisattvas wearing similar beaded girdles are displayed in the Western Side Hall of the Yonghegong, ibid, p. 51.
