The Buddhist Goddess Bhrikuti


Description Provenance Credit
Description Adorning female deities with the garments and jewelry of royalty, sculptors endowed them with a beauty and dignity that reflected the ideals of the court. Like Tara, Bhrikuti is an attendant to Avalokiteshvara, embodiment of compassion, and she helps the advanced student of meditation fully realize loving kindness.
Provenance Mrs. William Siedenburg, New York, [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 2001, by gift.
Credit Gift of Cylia G. Siedenburg, 2001
