A beautiful hand carved statue of Buddha with gilded face and body. Buddha is seated with the right leg up on a lotus base, his left hand holding a Ru Yi and his right holding a strand of pearls, dressed in long flowing robes draping over his shoulders and falling in undulous folds over his arms and knees leaving the torso bare, revealing a double strand pearl necklace. His face with gentle features set in a benevolent expression, framed by pendulous ears and hair surmounted by the usnisha. Ru Yi is a symbol of granting wishes. Original gilding.
