658. Chinese Finely Bamboo Luohan

Chinese Finely Bamboo Luohan 竹雕弥勒罗汉像

Finely carved, this sculpture depicts a plump luohan figure seated cross-legged in deep meditation on a rare wooden stand.

The figure is adorned with a loose robe that falls naturally over the shoulders and cascades down the back. With both hands gracefully holding a Chinese wooden block(muyu), the sculpture captures a serene and tranquil essence.

The facial expression showcases a gentle smile, while the eyebrows are clearly defined, adding to the overall lifelike portrayal.
