ANTIQUE CHINESE SINO-TIBETAN BRONZE
STATUE OF VAISRAVANA BUDDHA

Vaiśravaṇa or Vessavaṇa also known as Namtösé in Tibet and Bishamonten in Japan is the name of the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings and an important figure in Buddhism. In Tibet, Vaiśravaṇa is considered a worldly dharmapāla or protector of the Dharma, a member of the retinue of Ratnasambhava. He is also known as the King of the North. As guardian of the north, he is often depicted on temple murals outside the main door. He is also thought of as a god of wealth. Tibetan Buddhists consider Jambhala's sentiment regarding wealth to be providing freedom by way of bestowing prosperity, so that one may focus on the path or spirituality rather than on the materiality and temporality of that wealth. This outstanding casting measures only 3 inches (7.5cm) high. Emblazed on a 24K gold-gilt (tested), cast in a beautiful Ming style. Judging by the wear and style, this piece most probably dates to sometime in the 19th century or later. It's quite scarce to find statues of this smaller size, highly desired by collectors worldwide. Provenance: property of a Gentleman
