Glowing with dynamism, with vibrant polychrome application, her face with pleasingly harmonised features lovingly carved, with a large urna indented in the centre of her forehead, she wears an intricate foliate diadem enlivened with copper-green and vermilion pigments, with seated figure of Amitabha, her hair twisted into a high chignon with tresses looped around the ears and flowing in rippling tendrils over the shoulders, festooned with an intricate double-tiered necklace with the vajra symbol and a single armlet and bracelet on each arm, wearing an elongated shoulder scarf, her voluptuous figure with a slender torso and slight hip-swing seated majestically in rajalilasana, with both feet exposed, her right hand resting on the raised leg with the palm facing downwards, the left hand supporting the pose, the brahmanic cord looped diagonally across the torso and tied at the waist to secure the skirt of her copper-green dhoti so that the garment falls in graceful, concentric folds to her ankles, a decorative floral chain attached to her garment below the knee.

Provenance:In a private Singaporean collection prior to February 1979.
