A fantastic terracotta piece featuring Bodhisattva Wen Shu on her elephant ride. Wen Shu, one of the four great Bodhisattva, is The Bodhisattva of Wisdom, with the particular quality representing deep understanding of life's philosophy and power to repel evil thoughts and behaviors. Her halo, facial expression and robe are all beautifully crafted with gorgeous muted colors. The same fineness repeats itself on the lion, successfully demonstrating its viciousness and vitality.
