A thickly potted Chinese blanc de chine porcelain Maitreya (future Buddha), flanked on either side by Arahats at shoulder level and a standing Bodhisattva on both sides. A “Bodhisattva” is a Sanskrit term for an enlightened one who wishes to attain Buddha hood. “Arahat” Sanskrit for one who is worthy, they are considered to be saints of the highest order, one that has attained an insight into the true nature of existence and has achieved nirvana.

The central image of the Maitreya’s hand gesture is in darmachakra mudra, seated on a double lotus throne on top of a pedestal. Two dragons face one another across the front of the base, just beautiful.

The back shows two horses in a relaxed posture with the Dehua gourd mark at the bottom.
