This sculpture is thought to have been made in the Tsang province of Tibet, famous for its workshops. Some produced many masterpieces made of brass inlaid with copper and silver, others produced gilt copper alloy statues inlaid with a large quantity of turquoise and coral, all of them with characteristic Tibetan facial features and a Yongle-style lotus base. The above is made of gilt copper alloy and has silver-inlaid eyes and copper-inlaid lips – an unusual combination.
