Guanyin is a Chinese manifestation of the Avalokiteśvara bodhisattva, a being committed to attaining Buddhahood. Avalokiteśvara embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. Also known as Tara or Jetsun Dölma in Tibet, Avalokiteśvara is a significant figure in Buddhism. One of the noteworthy lots in the upcoming Showplace Antique + Design Center sale is an antique bronze Chinese or Tibetan Guanyin figure, seated on a lotus flower base. She has cobalt-painted hair and gilt-painted accents. One of the jewelry highlights in the event is a ring studded with 36 small round and 27 baguette diamonds. Several loose round-cut tanzanite stones will be available as well. The blue and violet variety of the mineral zoisite, popularly known as tanzanite, is found exclusively in Tanzania.
The sale also features Turkish carpets and rugs. One of them has a beige background, a red and green center medallion, and a geometric floral border. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
