Why this is a
Masterpiece

This statuette shows Bodhisattva Manjusri, to whom people pray to gain knowledge and understanding. Manjusri represents wisdom and reflection. In his left hand he holds his symbol, the sword, which can cut through and change all ignorance into wisdom. In Tibet Manjusri is one of the meditation gods (Yidam) on whom people focus their personal meditation. Here he is depicted in tantric form with three heads and eight arms. In his knee his female counterpart is sitting, holding a lotus flower. The statuette, which consists of several parts, is evidence of fine bronze work which is also of great religious and historical interest.
