Title: Dehua: Guanyin figurine seated on a rock, Ming dynasty
Author(s): Hajek, Lubor
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: China;sculpture;ceramics;book scan
Description: This porcelain statuette of Guanyin is still thought to belong to the Ming period. However, the delicate and gentle expression points to a later period, probably 17th or 18th century. Another indication of a later period is that the glaze is creamy in tone rather than white.
