十五世紀銅鎏金釋迦牟尼像

Tibet. Cast seated in dhyanasana with the hands lowered in dhyanamudra holding an alms bowl, wearing a pleated robe with finely incised scroll borders draped over the left shoulder. The serene face with an urna, downcast almond-shaped eyes beneath gently arched eyebrows, and slender lips forming a subtle smile, flanked by a pair of long pendulous ears.

Provenance: Swiss private collection.
Condition: Excellent condition commensurate with age, with minor wear, light surface scratches, expected wear to gilt, minuscule nicks and dents here and there, the original seal plate with two larger dents, some casting flaws.

The head and domed ushnisha covered with tight curls and surmounted by a bud-shaped jewel, all supported on a double lotus pedestal with beaded edges, the base sealed with a vishvavajra.

Your bid limit will be the maximum amount you can bid during the auction. Your bid limit is for the hammer price and is not affected by the buyer’s premium and VAT.  For example, if you have a bid limit of €1,000 and place two winning bids for €300 and €200, then you will only be able to bid €500 for the rest of the auction.
