  • 西藏 約十五世紀 銅鎏金釋迦牟尼佛像

    Sensitively modeled with robust limbs and chest filled with yogic breath (prana), this gilded image represents an idealized form of The Enlightened One. The subtle swells of his pectorals and waist underneath the diaphanous robe showcase the work of a skilled craftsman. The presence of the small vajra before Buddha's ankles references Shakyamuni's enlightenment at Bodh Gaya in India. Compare to another gilt bronze image of the historical Buddha sold at Sotheby's, New York, 17 March 2015, lot 1025.

    Provenance
    Ex-Estate of Martha J. Kirkpatrick (1925-2015), Los Angeles
