Polychrome Wood Figure of Guanyin Qing Dynasty China 19th Century

$71,181.41

About

A large polychrome wood figure of Guanyin, China, Qing dynasty, 19th century, from a private collection, directly bought in China in 1980 by the former owner for his Parisian apartment. His collection was supervised by the famous Daniel Pasgrimaud, one of the main donators of the Louvre, and most known interior designer of the 20th century. The iconography is based on the Gandavyuha Chapter of the Buddhist Avatamasakasutra where Avalokiteshvara or Guanyin resided on Mount Potalaka where the young pilgrim Sudhana visited him. He found Guanyin seated on the rocky shores of the grotto "sound of waves" contemplating the reflection of the moon in the water. In due course this specific form of Guanyin became better known as "water-moon" Guanyin.
