This elegant, slender-waisted figure is stylistically related to other bodhisattva figures of Yuan dynasty date. The necklace is very similar to that worn by a gilt-bronze Avalokitesvara, dated 13th-14th century, in the British Museum, illustrated by W. Zwalf (ed.) in Buddhism: Art and Faith, British Museum, 1985, p. 207, no. 298. The earrings, and the manner in which they hang from the large ears, as well as the depiction of the facial features, are similar to those of a lacquered wood figure of Maitreya, illustrated p. 207, no. 299, which is dated Yuan-early Ming, 14th-15th century. A qingbai figure of a bodhisattva, also dated 13th-14th century, illustrated in Fojiao diaosu Mingpin tulu (Images of Famous Buddhist Sculpture), Beijing, 1997, p. 451, no. 431, is adorned with similar earrings, and beaded jewelry, including a girdle of beaded garlands.
