A Beautiful Large Detailed Tibetan Bodhisattva Manjushree Brass Statue.
A beautiful statue of Tibetan Bodhisattva Manjushree. Legend has it that he cuts water with the sword to divide the water resource to irrigate dry valleys. Manjushree is the God of Wisdom. In this statue he wears a high crown and is decorated with pearls, flowers and sashes.
Manjushri's right hand brandishes the sword which dispels ignorance and the other holds the stem of a lotus which finds full bloom on his left shoulder. This is a symbol of auspiciousness and a sign of 'pure birth.' While Manjushri's complete body is achieved in a silver hue, his ornaments are exclusively golden. With this almost divine color combination, coupled with the youthful gentleness on his face, the sculptor has succeeded eminently in capturing the benign essence of this compassionate bodhisattva.
