A FINE 18TH CENTURY THANGKA DEPICTING AVALOKITESHVARA SHADAKSHARI
Katalognummer: CA0918-043
Distemper and gold paint on cloth, with brocade and velvet mounting; behind glass in modern frame
Sino-Tibetan
18th century

This thangka shows the Buddha of compassion, Avalokiteshvara, in his four-armed Sadaksari form. The Bodhisattva is seated in vajraparyankasana and has his main hands folded at his heart. In his raised hands he holds a lotus flower and a Mala. The portrayal is set in a mesmerizing landscape with detailed floral decoration and at the upper center is a precious canopy as well as a miniature three-headed deity. In the four corners we find distinctive portraits of Padmasambhava, Vajrasattva Manjushri and Vajrapani – clockwise staring in the upper left corner.

Shape: Rectangular vertical shape
Dimensions: 50 x 33 cm (painting size), 90 x 56 cm (frame)
Condition: The painting is in overall good age-related condition with some creases and abrasions. The brocade mount is very frail with material loss and tears
Provenance: Austrian Private Collection

Auction result comparison: Sotheby’s, CHINESE ART, 01 JUNE 2015 - 02 JUNE 2015, HONG KONG, lot 627 (for a Thangka with the same motif, yet less refined – in a lot of two)
