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.
