This piece is from South China.This figure of a beautiful young woman represents an attendant which would have accompanied an enlightened Buddhist figure as its attendant. Her beautifully modeled face highlights the sense of modesty of the image, her eyes are guardedly cast down and she wears an elegant two tiered gown with a high collar and long flowing sleeves that covers her entire body falling. Her body is depicted in a slightly swaying posture, and atop her head rests a decorative headdress and a scarf that winds gracefully around her head and upper body.
