Description

Statue of bodhisattva. Hard dark grey limestone stained and discolored with age; traces of green, red and blue pigment. Almost identical with C113 but there is no figure in the aureole of the tiara. C113, C150 and C151 are from Cave #2 of the Southern Xiangtangshan. C150 could be from the front shrine, one of the three shrines surrounded by the central pillar.
