Very rare Bronze, which gives the front of a flaming Nimbus, on a Lotus base standing Buddha Shakyamuni (Shijiamouni) in folds of rich flowing robe. The raised Hand is in the gesture of fearlessness, Abhaya, the reduced held in Varadamudra, the gesture of wish-fulfillment. On the semiplas table running Nimbus are found flanking a Lotus standing Bodhisattvas podium, probably with a Lotus flower in one Hand, möglw. Padmapani. Above Buddha on Lotus throne sitting in a non-identifiable form, as in worship, and without the skull increase, it could a father act. Very powerfully designed Lick of the flame ring, the rays of the "light" of the appearance of the Buddha or the doctrine symbolizes. On the back of the Nimbus, a long dedication is an inscription with date: (from top right) WUPING he nian 武 平 二 年 (2. Year of Wuping), which corresponds to 571. This time also corresponds to the style of this Bronze. Wuping is a 570 at the beginning of the end of the period of the Northern Qi dynasty. Strong, mostly green patina, some old bestoßene tips of the flames, but overall a good complete preservation of integrity. Enclosed is the examination report 15-006 of the Archäometrischen Institute REM, Mannheim, concerning the authenticity of the investigation with the result, "that it is old metal ... thus, no evidence for a modern production ..."
