清 铜鎏金财宝天王像
Qing Dynasty, A Very Rare Gilt Bronze Figure of Jambhala
Wearing armour, boots and a tall trilobate crown, the guardian deity wielding a folded parasol in his right hand and a mongoose spewing jewels on his left, seated on a lion crouching on its haunches with its head reared and fangs bared, on a separately cast lotus pedestal. The base is sealed and incised with a double-vajra. The delicate details, slightly angular features and heavy gilding are characteristics of Buddhist bronzes made in the Sino-Tibetan period. It is both a reflection of the religious beliefs of the Qing emperors and a reminder of the political importance of Tibetan Buddhism to the Manchu ruling house in forging their alliance with Mongolia and Tibet.
