Chinese Song Dynasty Stucco Sculpture of Guanyin, Bodhisattva of Compassion



A Chinese Song Dynasty period painted stucco sculpture of Guanyin, Bodhisattva of Compassion, circa 960 to 1279. Created in China during the Song Dynasty, this seated sculpture depicts Guanyin the Bodhisattva of Compassion, wearing a dress, a coat and some jewelry accented with traces of red and green polychromy. During the Song dynasty, such sculptures were crafted with a great refinement, as was this one. Showcasing a serene expression and with both hands raised, the sculpture conveys an undeniable sense of peace, making it an excellent decorative choice to adorn any home, perhaps displayed in a living room or foyer.
