San FranciscoLot Details A gilt-lacquered bronze seated figure of a twenty-four arm Guanyin Ming dynasty, 16th/17th century

Seated dhayanasa with his crossed legs enveloped in drapery, a scarf and a jeweled necklace hanging from his shoulders and a tall reticulated crown encircling his head, the crown fronted with three seated Buddhas and continuing on the back above three tiny wrathful heads issuing from the back of his neck, his principal hands held in anjali mudra above two subsidiary hands holding a book while various ritual objects fill sixteen hands and the two hands nearest the crown are meant to hold a separately cast arch of clouds centered with a seated image of Amitabha, the surfaces showing remains of gilt lacquer on the red lacquered metal ground.

21 1/4in (54cm) height of figure to top of crown

25 3/4in (65.5cm) height including separately cast Amitabha arch Footnotes

The esoteric form of Avalokiteshvara can have as many as a thousand arms and eleven heads, some of which can show a wrathful face. The presence of the seated Amitabha on the separately cast cloud arch also indicates that this unusual image with twenty four arms and four heads depicts the same deity.

A very similar gilt lacquered bronze sculpture of a twenty-four arm Guanyin, also with a seated Amitabha Buddha on an arch over the crown but cast seated on a double lotus base, was sold in Christie's, New York sale 11928, 17-18 March 2016, lot 1416 (26 3/4in [67.9cm] high, also as Ming dynasty, 16th-17th century).
