About this object

One of a pair of small gilt bronze statues of Padmapani. He is standing on a small double lotus pedestal, surrounded by a flaming mandorla. His left hand is lowered in the mudra of genorosity and his right hand is raised to heart level. In both hands he holds the stem of a lotus that can be seen at his shoulders, both hold what appear to be Buddhist parasols or banners.
