Large Woodcarving, Polychromed over Gesso of Guan Yin
This free standing figure of Guan Yin is probably a copy of Sui or Early Tang Dynasty Bodhisattva. This feminized Guan Yin wood carving has been gessoed and polychromed. She stands on the traditional hour glass or Mount Sumeru shape pedestal. The figure has a flat slender body, sweeping robes and trailing scarves in different colors. Another aspect on this statute are the brass colored tracing around the folds and edges of the robes and scarves. One of the common styles shows Guan Yin holding a bottle and a willow twig. More history, description and references available on our website. There are wood age cracks and lost polychrome. Size: ~ 29 1/4" H x 8" x 7" Weight: 9 3/4 pounds
