Japanese Gilt Bronze Buddha Statue
Kannon Bosatsu
Bodhisattva of Mercy
Edo Period, 1600-1868
H 14.25 in.(36cm), W 4.5 in.(11cm), D 4.5 in.(11cm)
Condition: very good, missing lotus

Kannon, the Japanese Bodhisattva of mercy, stands on a double lotus, her right hand in the gesture of charity, her left hand upraised to hold a lotus, (the missing attribute.) She wears a high bun and a crown upon which can be seen an image of Amitabha Buddha. She stands in a samapada pose, eyes cast down, her robes falling in wavelike loops and folds to her feet, where each toenail has been carved. The figure is classically proportioned and is surmounted by a bronze mandorla engraved with flames which appears to have been added or replaced at later time, and is secured by a welded rod on the reverse.

A finely cast statue of excellent preservation. With original finish flaked off in irregular patterns, leaving a mottled shading of old lacquer with gold highlights, a surface typical of older gilt bronzes. Some surfaces appear burnished from touching, an indication that this piece was preserved and cherished for use in spiritual practice.
