Description: IMPORTANT, RARE 17th/18th C. Large Chinese Sino-Tibetan silver gilt Buddha, figure of Padmasambhava Padmasambhava (Tibetan: pema Jung ne. English: the Lotus Born): the Main Founder of Tibetan Buddhism together with His Eight Manifestations. With a steady composure gazing on all beings, face adorned with a moustache and goatee, the right hand holds an upright gold vajra. The left hand placed in the lap holds a white skull cup filled with nectar, jewels and a long-life vase. The ornate katvanga staff of a Vajrayana mendicant decorated with white streamers rests against the left shoulder. Adorned with gold earrings and a necklace, the head is covered with a lotus hat, a gift of the King of Zahor, of silk brocade topped with a half-vajra and a single vulture feather. Attired in various robes of different patterns reflecting the disciplines of the Vinaya, Bodhisattva and Mantra Vehicles, he sits atop gilt double lotus blossom throne. Underside with incised quatrefoil flori-form petal visvavajra gilt mark surrounding the centralized DaiJi.
