Standing Carved Wood Bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara, Guanyin, China, 1368-1644

About

Early Ming standing carved wood Bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara (Guanyin), China 1368-1644. This massive Bodhisattva Guanyin is depicted here in the form of a very detailed, painted-wood statue. The paint has faded with time, leaving behind the light-brown color of the wood and traces of stucco as base for the pigments. The craftsmanship of the statue is extraordinary, with detail shown at a professional level. The plentiful adornments that normally appear in depictions of other Bodhisattvas make an appearance here and include an ornate and extremely detailed crown and earrings. The Bodhisattvas robe is shown flowing effortlessly over her body. The folds of the robe give the statue a realistic feel. Unfortunately the hands are missing, a portion of the back and the lower part of the statue is missing. The statue went through a complete process of conservative restoration and wood consolidation, Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti di Torino, Italy.
