This richly gilded figure depicts a young Buddhist disciple. His distinct characteristics, including the youthful face with a bald head, long earlobes and quiet countenance, positioned standing on a plain lotus pod, suggest that the figure may represent a youthful Ananda, the primary attendant of Shakyamuni Buddha. A similar example in Harvard Art Museum, bequest of Grenville L. Winthrop (accession no. 1943.53.66), is illustrated in Leopold Swergold, Thoughts on Chinese Buddhist Gilt Bronzes, Aventure, 2014, cat. no. 14.
