  • Description
    A Monumental pair of Chinese Sancai Glazed pottery figures / sculptures of Guan Yin and Lion on Wood Bases

    Chinese sancai glazed figures of Guan Yin and lion are a type of ceramic artwork that originated in China during the Tang dynasty (618-907 AD). "Sancai" means "three colors" in Chinese, and refers to the use of three distinct colors of glaze (usually green, yellow, and white) in the creation of these figures.

    Guan Yin is a Chinese bodhisattva associated with compassion and mercy, and is often depicted holding a vase of healing elixir or a willow branch. The lion, on the other hand, is a symbol of power and strength, and is often used as a guardian figure in Chinese mythology.

    The combination of Guan Yin and lion in a single artwork is significant, as it represents the union of mercy and power, a common theme in Buddhist and Taoist philosophy.

    Sancai glazed figures of Guan Yin and lion are highly valued by collectors and art enthusiasts due to their intricate design and rich history. They are often displayed in museums and galleries around the world, and are considered important cultural artifacts of Chinese art and history.
