EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures a magnificent piece of art from the Ming dynasty in China. The Gilt-bronze figure of Shakyamuni Buddha sits gracefully on a lotus throne, radiating tranquility and peace. Standing as one of the largest and most intricately designed Sino-Tibetan bronzes from the early 15th century, this masterpiece showcases the exquisite craftsmanship of its time. Behind the seated figure, an arched mandola is delicately pierced with fire and flower scrolls, adding to its ornate beauty. The vibrant colors and intricate details bring life to this religious iconography. This image transports us to a serene world where nature intertwines seamlessly with spirituality. The composition evokes a sense of harmony as we witness this deity in his lotus position, embodying truth and enlightenment. The golden hue that adorns the sculpture symbolizes divinity while capturing our attention with its gilded allure. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are reminded of the rich cultural heritage found within Chinese Buddhism. It serves as a testament to centuries-old traditions that continue to inspire awe and reverence today. Captured by photographer CM Dixon during their visit to the British Museum's collection, this image preserves not only an extraordinary work of art but also invites us into a realm where serenity meets devotion.
