|Description: A charming wood Guanyin was preserved rarely with original stand. By a fine carving skill depicting the holy deity from the robe’s simple and flouring lines, the benign facial expression and the easy sitting posture, we can be sure that the piece was from the deft hands of a devoted and well-trained craftsman. An original and well fitted throne was surrounded by two sections of lotus petals, upwards and downwards the petals were carved vividly with beautiful curves. Supported under the lotus throne, there’s a square stand with four lightly slanted feet. Motifs of crisply carved flowers and weeds were rendered on the front and two other sides of the stand. The stand and the lotus throne were carved from one block of wood. The magnificent stand supplemented the authoritativeness of the Bodhisattva in a full way. Date: Qing Dynasty(18th/19th century), Height: 17cm(with stand)|
