(G17) Exuding vitality and grace, the bodhisattva resplendent with vibrant pigments applied to the surface, the rippling hair coloured with a naturalistic blue-black pigment, the characteristically round face with flesh-pink pigment, the fine features idealized and set in a pensive expression, the narrow eyes set with stone, the straight slender body draped in a dhoti of copper-green and vermilion, adorned with similarly pigmented fluttering scarves, her upright torso bedecked with elaborate multi-tiered beaded chains suspending pendants with the ruyi symbol and florets, she sits majestically in lalitasana, atop an elephant with stone-set eyes and two tapered tusks, with a ribbed trunk curling inwards and creased ears, set upon a wooden plinth.

Provenance: In a private Hong Kong collection prior to April 2011.
