The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s description says of this elegant Chinese bodhisattva that it “wears a particularly elaborate array of fine beaded chains and pendants on his chest and skirt. The object is part of a series of large Buddhist porcelain sculptures bejeweled with applied ropes of pearl beading, which relates them to a popular trend of decoration in the early fourteenth century.”

Seated Bodhisattva is part of The Metropolitan Museum’s collection of Chinese religious sculpture, assembled between 1920 and 1950, the largest such collection in the West.
