Description

A MUSUEUM QUALITY OF LARGE AND MASSIVE LIMESTONE HEAD OF GUANYIN

MING, China, 1368-1644 or earlier.

The stone assertively carved with the Bodhisattva in contrast showing a gracious and peaceful expression, the hair bound together towards a high chignon, above a flower tiara with flaming ear-caps to each side.

Datation

Early 15th century - C.1425

Weigth

10 kilo


Condition

The stone has suffered extensive wear, weathering and calcification but developed an exquisite natural patina at the same time.

There are losses, dents, scratches and a circumferential fissure around the neck, all as visible on the photos.

Remainder of old paste to underside, likely because the head was once attached to a later base.

Please check pictures for global condition
