Western Tibet, an early standing Manjushri

This rare statue, with a doll-like body, represents Manjushri holding his sword in one hand and a long-stemmed lotus flower in the other. He is wearing a tall Kashmiri-style moon-crescent crown which is very big for his head, a very long and sinuous incised scarf and an incised knee-length dhoti held in place with a belt. 64 more words
