|China, Northern Qi Dynasty, 550 - 577 A.D.|
This exceptionally beautiful standing Buddha represents the height of Northern Qi Buddhist sculptures in the quality of its carving and elegant restraint. The clinging robe with diagonal folds enliven the surface of the front and on the back, the smooth robe reveals the contours of the body underneath. The hair is rendered as a series of snail shell curls done as finely incised spirals. The face has the unreachable deep meditative expression typical of Buddhist art.
|The treatment of the robe has just a few parallels in Northern Qi sculpture and makes this a rare example of the art of this period, and how it reflects the influence of Indian Gupta sculptural style.|
