A Stylized Gilt-Bronze Bodhisattva of Tang Dynasty,618-


A sitting Bodhisattva was in stylized posture.
With high chignon and a sitting Buddha in front of the beaded decoration on top of his head, the Bodhisattva owned the full cheek and narrowed mouth as serene and characteristic features of Tang Buddhas.
He hold in his right with flowers when a purify bottle was in his left hand.
The pedestal he was sitting was decorated with lotus petals on the underside.
It was the upper part of a double-decked base.

The Bodhisattva was meticulously depicted in details when most part of the well preserved gilt were covered with the burial adhesives(Baojiang).
