This older hand-carved sculpture with inscription comes from a fifty year old Chinese antique stone collection formed in the 1970s-1980s. We are offering the last works from this one of a kind group and all date to the 1920s-1940s. China, a large scale fine old hand-carved limestone effigy of a seated Buddha or Bodhisattva Guanyin carved in relief against an intricately incised background mandorla including ten attendants or disciples with flames on edge. The Buddha is seated a top an angular pedestal with guardian foo dogs at the sides.It is not uncommon to find older Chinese stone Buddhist sculptures missing one or both of the original, separately carved hands from age and frequent movement. A rarely found inscription beneath likely tells of a family dedication and history as it was likely in a private shrine or special Buddhist garden. On reverse we find an unusually prolific incising of more Buddhist attendants covering the entirety.
This work of art in all its splendor would make a fine indoor or garden presentation and choice. Dimensions: 26 inches high and 15.5 inches wide.Provenance: Coming from an old Beijing collection assembled in the 1970s-1980s. About the Chinese Buddhism: Chinese Buddhism has shaped Chinese culture in a wide variety of areas including art, politics, literature, philosophy, medicine and material culture. The translation of a large body of Indian and Nepalese Buddhist scriptures into Chinese and the inclusion of these translations together with works composed in China into a printed canon had far-reaching implications for the dissemination of Buddhism throughout the Chinese cultural sphere, including Korea, Japan, Ryukyu Islands and Vietnam. Chinese stone carvings are among the impressive artistic evidence of the regional spread of this great culture.
