Recently, a rare sitting statue of GuanShiYin in Ming Dynasty was collected, with a height of 37.8cm and a weight of 11.35kg.
In 1506 ad, Zhu houzhao, the 10th emperor of Ming Dynasty, used the term "Zhengde" for 16 years. In April of the 16th year of Zhengde, mingshizong ascended the throne.
This collection is the statue of Kuan Yin, which was built by the Ministry of works during the Ming (Zhengde) period.
The material contains the wind mill copper from the tribute of Siam (now Thailand). The main components of the wind mill copper are red copper and gold. Its color is purplish red. The higher the gold content, the lighter the color.
The casting process is "wax loss method". Lost wax method, also known as "investment casting method", is a kind of precision casting method for bronze and other metal objects. It is characterized by the ability to cast more complex artifacts, and its modeling and decoration are more sophisticated and complex. The wax is used as the model. The inner space of the model is filled with soil, and the outer space is wrapped with rope and mud. When it is dry, it will naturally become a fan, and then it will be filled with liquid metal. Because the wax is melted by heat and flows out, the left space will be filled with copper liquid as an organic type. Wax loss method can be used to make delicate, complex and multi-level body.
Guanyin, wearing a high corolla, sat on the lotus seat, holding a clean bottle in his left hand, making a picture with his right hand. He had a beautiful face and a peaceful look. Looking down from his eyes, he seemed to pay close attention to the world with infinite compassion. The dress lines are smooth, vivid and zigzag, and the legs are decorated with oval pleats, which is a typical technique of Ming Dynasty sculpture. Looking at this image of Guanyin, one can't help but feel that GuanShiYin is no longer the God who lives high in the altar, but a spiritual messenger who can be close and communicate, the embodiment of beauty and the representative of good. This collection has been preserved for more than 500 years because of the long history of fireworks, the erosion of the sun and the moon, and the gray and black skin and color paste on the surface. It is really not easy and has great collection and economic value.

GuanShiYin is the old translation of kumarashi, Xuanzang's new translation is Guanyi, which is called Guanyin in China. GuanShiYin Bodhisattva is the symbol of compassion and wisdom in Buddhism. No matter in Mahayana Buddhism or in folk belief, the great compassion spirit dominated by GuanShiYin Bodhisattva plays an extremely important role.
