Extremely finely cast, the gilt-bronze figure is shown seated upon a double lotus throne in lalitasana position on a flat cushion made out of antelope skin, his right hand raises to his right ear, and left hand holding a sacred vase. He wears a voluminous robe draped across his left arm wrapping the belly in folds, and a sash across the right shoulder, decorated with delicate foliage scroll motifs. His face is shown with a joyful expression with mouth open, indicating that he is reciting one of his celebrated poems or songs, and flanked by two elongated earlobes with spiral-shaped earrings, the hair detailed with finely incised lines. The back of the lotus throne bears a series of Tibetan inscriptions. Ming Dynasty period.
