|This 18th century ceramic figure of the Chinese Buddhist bodhisattva of mercy is unusual in several respects. The form is uncharacteristically simple for the popular Chinese goddess who typically was shown with elaborate flowing robes. The pert face is particularly different with its full lips, upturned nose and wide eyes. Only one hand is visible and it rests on her right knee. The high beaded headpiece and heavy necklace identify the figure as Guanyin. The weighty ceramic figure is heavily glazed in a mottled tan to khaki color, and is in excellent condition. Height 11" (28 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
