Two figures of Guanyin, anonymous, 1050 - 1200

bronze (metal), h 13.2cm × w 6.0cm × d 6.5cm. More details

These figures incorporate more details than earlier representations of Guanyin. During the Liao dynasty, Guanyin’s crown and neck jewellery were lavishly and meticulously rendered. The bodies are also a little stockier than previously, with short legs.
