« 1. Bodhisattva | Main | The Bell - Or The Picture Of The Bell »


This from the spectacular Asian Art wing of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. That's Guanyin seated in the middle (Song Dynasty, 960-1269, wood with traces of paint), flanked by a pair of unidentified bodhisattvas (Southern Song Dynasty, 1127-1279, wood with traces of paint). The altar set and incense burner are from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). [NOTE: I had this whole wing to myself yesterday; non-flash photography is permitted. I was in heaven...].
