Why this is a
Masterpiece

This sculpture of white porcelain represents the standing figure of a Buddhist monk in the dhyana mudra position with the hands held at the level of the stomach. The right hand is placed above the left with its palms facing upwards. Dhyana mudra is the mudra of meditation. The sculpture belongs to the Te-hua “Chinese White” group which achieved its highest level during the Kangxi reign in the 17th Century. The expressive modeling and the high quality of porcelain proves that the ware was made when the Te-hua was on the top of its fame.

History of the Object
White porcelain Te-hua was already famous in the the 16th Century but in the 17th Century it was mainly used in producing these figures which were distinguished by perfect modeling.
