This older hand-carved sculpture comes from a 50 year old Chinese antique stone collection formed in the 1970s-1980s. We are offering this last Buddha Guan yin from this one of a kind group and all date to the 1920s-1940s.
A medium and portable scale fine old hand-carved limestone effigy of a seated Buddha or Bodhisattva Guanyin carved in relief against a zen like simple background mandorla. At the bottom we find carved attendants, disciples, and a flame censor. The handsome Buddha is simply seated appealing to view. It was likely in a private shrine or special Buddhist garden.
On top edge and reverse we find evidence of hand carving.
This work of art in all its splendor would make a fine indoor or garden presentation and choice.

About the Chinese Buddhism:
Chinese Buddhism has shaped Chinese culture in a wide variety of areas including art, politics, literature, philosophy, medicine and material culture.
The translation of a large body of Indian and Nepalese Buddhist scriptures into Chinese and the inclusion of these translations together with works composed in China into a printed canon had far-reaching implications for the dissemination of Buddhism throughout the Chinese cultural sphere, including Korea, Japan, Ryukyu Islands and Vietnam. Chinese stone carvings are among the impressive artistic evidence of the regional spread of this great culture.
We have been dealing in authentic Chinese and Japanese antiquities, garden ornaments, lanterns and water basins for 25 years. Mr. Schneible personally travels to China and Japan each year to meet his network partners who assist him in finding best examples. He personally inspects each antique work of art to ensure its old age, authenticity and quality condition.
