Bronze

高 /Height: 30 cm

Akshobhya Buddha, the Unshakable Buddha, traditionally referred as the Buddha of the Eastern direction, cast in rich brown color metal, peacefully seated in dhyanasana posture on a double lotus throne with right hand touching earth gesture. Made and influenced heavily by Newar art style, could be made in Tibet or Nepal region. Fine cast in one piece and adorned with lapis color pigments, painted with cold gold during Tibetan traditional practice. The appearance of the jewelry decorated crown, slightly short neck and broad shoulder make this statue of Buddha unique from typical Tibetan work.

An important and richly gilded figure of Vajrasattva seated in dhyanasana, with lavishly jewelled ornaments, left hand in vitarkamudra, and the vajra on his right hand now missing. The work of this Vajrasattva has influences from both Nepal and Tibet, which might define as Newar artists made for Tibetan patrons. An unusual urna is inlaid with silver on his forehead under the crown of Garuda stretching its wings supporting the wheel of law. His hair knot is topped with a five pronged vajra. 1One very similar gilt bronze of Vajrasattva is kept in Tibet House Museum, New Delhi, India. 2Another smaller Vajrasattva (30 cm), dated 12th-13th centuries, was sold in Sotheby’s in 2008.

From *William H. Wolff, Inc.’s collection before 1998 and Nitta’s Collection, an unusual and early Nepalese bronze figure of Amoghapasa, richly gilded, standing in tribhanga posture on double lotus square base.

Amoghapasa, the Unfailing Lasso, dressing in highly decorated robe, a stem raised from the lotus touches the end of the robe. A fire halo is behind his head. Among his six pairs of arm his major right hand shows fear not mudra. 1A larger figure of Nepalese Amoghapasa (31.5 cm high) dated in 8th-9th centuries, which has a more classical Licchavi (300-879) influence, can be seen from Nyingjei Lam collection.

Fearsome form of Padmasambhava, with three bulging eyes, curly hair, and his upper fangs bit down on the lower lip. Each ear is hanging with a long twisted earring. He is holding a phurba and a bell, standing in alidhasana on top of extraordinary single lotus base crafted with a recumbent tiger under his feet.

Tibeto-Chinese, 18th century

Gilt bronze

高 /Height: 19 cm

A remarkable Tibeto-Chinese Yamantaka executed in richly gilded bronze, probably made in the Imperial workshop ordered by Chinese royal patrons. Wrathful manifestation of Manjusri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom or the Dharma protector, this Yamantaka has nine circular faces, including a superior buffalo face in the centre front and a face of Manjusri on the top. His main hands are holding the skull bowl and chopper embracing Vajrayogini, on the side two stacks of hands each holding original weapons or ritual objects. Standing in alidhasana position, stepping on humans, animals and flying birds, on top of a double lotus blossom. Yamantaka carries a white elephant skin behind his back, and a chain of skeletons is hanged under his dress distinguishing him from peaceful deity. An orange-red mineral pigment covering his hair is commonly seen on other wrathful deities made in the same period. 1A gilt bronze figure of Yamantaka (16.5 cm) from Beijing Capital Museum shares similarity with this piece, however with less refined workmanship.

Similar to the previous item cat-no. 17, phurpa, a piercing and wrathful ritual dagger commonly used in Himalayan shamanic ceremonies and meditation practice. However, this partially gilt phurpa seems to be made in a much symmetrically simplified and expressive design by the Tibetan artist in the 15th century. Much uniformed knot work, and stretched weaving work can be seen at the handle. Instead of a relatively common head of Makara bitting the phurpa blade, there is a simplified yet nicely executed flame-shaped pattern gilded on this meteorite iron dagger.

Based on the work and iconography, this sculpture most likely to be made in 17th century or after.
