This magnificent dehua figure of Guanyin is attributed to Hui Jiang. The goddess of mercy is kneeling on a tall rockwork plinth. The body draped in long cascading robes opening at the chest to reveal a pendant. The hair coiled up in to chignon and fastened with a tiara and hairpin. Her serene face with a small urna and peaceful. Downcast eyes the left hand holding a small scroll, woodstand, fitted box.
Although this figure is unmarked the face, hair, robe and rockwork bare a strong resemblance to a Blanc-de-Chine sculpture of Guanyin by Hui Jiang, illustrated by P J Donnelly in Blanc de Chine, New York, 1969, pl.82.
One tip to finger repaired.
