Japanese Small Bronze Buddha Statue Senju Kannon, 18C
Sold,Thank You!

Date: Edo era, the 1700~1800s.

Old bronze Buddha statue "Eleven-faced Senju Kannon".
Senju means thousand arm.
Since it is difficult to portray one thousand arms, images usually show Senju with two principle arms in gasshou-in (Sk: anjali mudra) in front of his chest and 40 arms, holding attributes and forming mudra, on the sides.
This number can be justified because each hand saves the beings of 25 worlds, and 40 times the 25 equals 1000.

It has very skillful technique and fine patina.
No repaired, no crack and no chip.
It is in excellent condition.

Measurements about: 7cm(2.75")Diameter, 16.5cm(6.49")Tall.

It is the right a convenient size for a ornament of home.
