A majestic portrayal of the bodhisattva of compassion, intricately moulded, coroneted with a high headdress partially obscured by her hooded with Amitabha exquisitely modelled on the petal-shaped frontal facet of her diadem, the symbol in the centre of her hairline, the strands of hair elegantly rendered, her delicate facial features pleasingly harmonised, with her eyes downcast, a dot in the centre of her forehead, the borders of her crown embellished with a fine floral motif, garlanded with a double-tiered necklet in an intricate network, with a series of five floral pendants suspended from chains, she sits at ease in dhyanasana with both feet obscured by the skirt of her dhoti, holding the amphora containing the ambrosial elixir in her left hand, with the night-illuminating pearl resting between her thumb and middle finger, seated upon a naturalistic double-lotus base, and a particularly harmonious depiction of the same bodhisattva, with a pleasing symmetry of form, crowned with a high headdress partially obscured by her hooded dhoti, with Amitabha intricately modelled on the petal-shaped frontal facet of her diadem, the vajra symbol in the centre of her hairline, the strands of hair elegantly rendered, her face with a notably fine bone-structure and delicate features, her eyes downcast, bedecked with a simple necklace with a single chain including a lotus pendant, seated at ease in dhyanasana, her right foot exposed, both hands raised in Anjali, seated upon a naturalistic lotus base, with a layer of scrolling wave pattern underneath.

Provenance: In the Raymond Choy collection, Hong Kong, from 1938 until being purchased in November 2007.
