Bodhisattva Manjushri

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Jauntily thrusting out his right hip, this handsome, smiling bodhisattva exemplifies a path to Buddhahood. Features that tie the figure to works generally thought to have been made in Western Tibet include the "dhoti" that falls further down on one side than the other, the beaded chain below the belt, the triad of pendants on the necklace, and the prominent tiara-tying ribbons (von Schroeder 1981; Reedy 1997).
