Chinese Lg Stone "Double Buddha" Guan Yin Attendants Hand-Carved Old Collection

About

An older special hand-carved example. This older hand-carved limestone sculpture comes from a 50 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 special large-scale fine old hand-carved solid limestone double panel effigy of a seated Buddha with multiple attendants carved in deep relief against an intricately incised background mandorla including attendants and disciples with the lower Buddha flanked by two guardian foo dogs. Two vertical bands on either side of the front depict five seated Buddhas. This Chinese Buddhist sculpture was likely in a private shrine or special Buddhist garden since on the reverse side we see where an offering niche has been filled (see photo). Offering niches usually held prayer scripts or food offerings to Buddha by donors or family owners. On reverse we also find evidence of hand carving. This work of art in all its splendor would make a good indoor or garden presentation and choice. Hand-carved. Only one. Beautiful faces. Dimensions: 23.5 inches high and 18 inches wide and 3.5 inches deep. It is a substantial work of art- appropriate for indoor or garden presentation. 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. Lifetime guarantee of authenticity: All of our Asian works of art come with our Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee.
