Ching, 18th century
This rare Tibeto-Chinese sculpture of a Bodhisattva kneeling on both knees is heavily cast. He wears only a scarf on his upper body while his lower body is clothed in a long dhoti with engraved borders. He is adorned with a five leaf crown, necklaces, bracelets, armlets earrings and anklets usually associated with Bodhisattvas. Both hands are in a gift giving position.
An example of an earlier Ming Bodhisattva kneeling on one knee is illustrated in von Schroeder, "Indo -Tibetan Bronzes", 1981, page 525, figures 148C and 148D.
