Antique Burmese gilded bronze seated Bodhisattva figures, 18th-19th Century
Burmese gilded bronze seated Bodhisattva figures, 18th-19th Century
We have 3 examples available of Burmese Shan (Tai-Yai) seated Bodhisattvas under a representation of a Bodhi tree.
As is typical of this type of art the left hand rests in the lap in deep contemplation of the future Buddha (dyhana mudra) and the right hand points to the earth to call the earth goddess to witness and recall the good deeds of the Bodhisattva in former existences - to be challenged by Mara, the tempter.
These are lovely examples of Burmese Shan (Tai-Yai) miniature art, which would originally have formed part of a small set depicting an important scene in the life and development of the Buddha.
Each figure is in gilded bronze with extensive gilding remaining.
