THE THRONE OF GODDESS GUANYIN
Catalog number: VS0617-001
Blanc de Chine porcelain
China, Dehua
Republic of
HEIGHT 37.8 CM
A particularly graceful Blanc de Chine Figurine. It presents a princely throne at the end of Guanyin in Lotus position on a high Lotus pedestal in front of a flaming Halo. It is the equivalent of the Buddhist Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, in China, but more of a great mother deity mutated. Very fine facial features are formed, the head crowned, and at the top of the crown is a small image of your "spiritual father" of the Buddha Amitabha, in China as Amituo Fo. Many carefully executed Details, such as Lotus leaves, buds, the delicate Finger, the waving sky, garland, etc., Guanyin holds in one Hand a Ruyi sceptre, the head of a stylized Lingzhi (magic long-life mushroom). Back side of a large Lotus leaf, Lotus flower, clouds, and sun. A sky garland has been repaired, which should, however, be original to have been in the making since überglasiert.
