Guanshiyin Bodhisattva of a Thousand Hands and Eyes , Song ( L )
Against the background of a myriad billowing waves and auspicious clouds spewing forth are the Four Heavenly Kings holding upa bejew eled lotus pedestal. On it stands a majestic Guanshiyin (or Guanyin) Bodhisattva of a Thousand Hands and Eyes. Two attendant bodhisattvas clasp their hands in reverence on either side of Guanyin, and next to them are two others in attendance holding Buddhist implements. The Guanyin here appears with facial hair, indicating a manifestation in male form, but the eyes and eyebrows are delicate and elegant. Combined with the warm and gentle look, the figure already reveals the manner of a female deity. Although this scroll bears neither seal nor signature of the artist, the outlining of the figures and lines of the drapery patterns were all done using strokes from a centered brush. The brushwork is fluid and spirited, the necklace decoration and gems inlaid onto the bejeweled lotus pedestal painted with exceptional detail. The coloring is beautiful but not vulgar, making this a masterpiece of Southern Song Buddhist painting. Guanshiyin Bodhisattva of a Thousand Hands and Eyes, Song Dynasty
