Another stunning item from our private Buddha collection.
Large Chinese Guanyin made of Jade, with changing jade colours from light green to green, yellow, grey and black, the figure is seated in dhyanasana on a double lotus flower, one hand holding a bottle of elixir and the other hand raised in apan mudra.
The artist has put together three pieces of jade, the buddha, the crown and the lotus seat to a spectacular Guanyin statue with very detailed carvings. Absolutely rare and one of a kind.
The statue dates from the Mid Qing Period ( circa late 18th. century ) and is in good antique condition. There is only a part of the little finger of the right hand missing, a small crack in the crown and some spoils of time due to age, but that does not diminish the great atmosphere of this rare jade Guanyin.
It is 37 cm high and has a weight of 5,5 kg.
