拍品資料及來源

Another similar bronze figure of Canda Vajrapani of the same size in the collection of the Jokhang, Lhasa, is illustrated in Ulrich von Schroeder, Buddhist Sculptures in Tibet, Vol. II, Tibet and China, Hong Kong, 2001, p. 768, 182A-B, where he identifies this group of powerfully modelled sculptures as being made in the Nanzhao Kingdom, current day Yunnan province, in the 9th century. It shares distinct similarities with the rock-sculptures of the Shizhongshan area. Compare also another example illustrated in Li Kunsheng, Nanzhao daliguo diaoke huihua yishu, Yunnan, 1999, no. 283, pl. 264.
