This finely cast figure, in which the original gilding is unusually well preserved, depicts a female Buddhist devotee standing with hands held in anjali mudra. Her delicate face is set in an expression of serene contemplation, her hair tied in a boat-shaped top knot. The rectangular tang that projects from the base would have allowed the figure to be inserted into a slot on the original platform. A gilt-bronze figure of similar size and form is illustrated in Chinese Art from the Ferrris Luboshez Collection, University of Maryland Art Gallery, Baltimore, 1972, pl. 106.
