Description
  • An absolutely beautiful and finely cast Chinese bronze in the form of Ksitigarbha and in Ming style. In Buddhist iconography, Ksitigarbha is typically depicted with a shaven head, dressed in a monk's simple robes. In his left hand, Ksitigarbha holds a wish fulfilling jewel in his right hand, he holds a staff. which is used to alert insects and small animals of his approach, so that he will not accidentally harm them. This staff is traditionally carried by Buddhist monks. Like other bodhisattvas, Ksitigarbha usually is seen standing on a lotus base, symbolising his release from the karmic wheel of rebirth. Ksitigarbha's face and head are also idealised, featuring the third eye and elongated ear. The staff on this bronze can be released by unscrewing the end and sliding it up, out of the hand. Typical Buddhist mark to base. This is quite a large bronze and extremely heavy so check shipping costs before offerding. Probably dating to the 1800s or earlier.
  • If you require further images to examine at high resolution please message me with your email address.
  • Overall condition is good with minor scratches.
  • The piece is 58cm high (approx 22¾").
