Lokeshvara - Antique Indonesian Style Majapahit Standing Bronze Lokeshvara Statue - 37cm/15"
Measurements Height 37cm/15"
An antique Java style standing bronze Lokeshvara sculpture in the 13th century Majapahit style. A top the Lokeshvara's head can be seen a seated meditating Amitabha Buddha.
Lokeshvara is stood samabhanga on a round lotus petal pedestal which is itself stood on a decorated pedestal. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all.
His face has a downcast gaze. Upon his head he wears a decorative Javanese style tiara in front of his Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises control over Positive and Negative attitudes. He has an aquiline nose and elongated earlobes with large ear rings.
His hands are held in a gesture of teaching. The thumb and finger making a circle.
Lokeshvara is backed by an aureole with a beaded border and flaming rim, topped by a decorative finial. This confirms his divinity. At the base of the aureole can be seen two Apsara in adoration pose.
The sculpture has a wonderful azurite and malachite patina.
