(G57) The bodhisattva of compassion portrayed with plentiful adornments, resplendent with polychrome application, seated elegantly in rajalilasana, with her right forearm resting on the raised knee, the left hand supporting the pose, her head crowned with a majestic pierced foliate coronet, bearing the carved effigy of the seated Amitabha Buddha, her hair arranged elegantly into a high chignon, the curved hairline dramatically rendered and enhanced with naturalistic blue-black pigment, with twisted tresses looped around her pendulous lobes and trailing over her shoulders in rippling tendrils, draped in copper-green and vermilion fluttering scarves, a double-tiered necklace adorning her bare chest, a brahmanic cord looped diagonally across her curvaceous torso and tied at the waist, securing the expansive skirt of her dhoti, which fans out voluminously in a graceful double-skirt down to her ankles, enlivened with copper-green and vermilion pigments.

Provenance: In the private collection of Raymond Choy, Hong Kong, from 1938 until being purchased in 2006.
