The artisans of the Himalayan kingdoms
perfected the art of the small bronze sculpture.
With graceful form, rich detail and a tangible
spirituality, Tibetan bronzes delight the senses
and stir the soul. This benevolent Buddha,
seated on a double lotus throne in Dhyanasana,
the meditative position, is a masterpiece of
serenity. As with the very finest religious art, his
attitude of peace and goodness appeals to some
inner emotion which is common to all humanity.
