Measurements Height 46cm/18"
An antique Java Style seated bronze Manjushri or Manjushree sculpture. A bodhisattva associated with wisdom in Mahāyāna Buddhism.
Mañjuśrī as the oldest and most significant bodhisattva in Mahāyāna literature.
Mañjuśrī is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts down ignorance and duality. The scripture supported by the Padma (lotus)held in his left hand is a Prajñāpāramitā sūtra, representing his attainment of ultimate realization from the blossoming of wisdom.
Here Manjushri wears a decorative Java style tiara, in front of her Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises her control over Positive and Negative attitudes. He has an aquiline nose and elongated earlobes with large earrings.
The aureole or halo behind him confirms his divinity.
