Huge Chinese Antique Carved White Nephrite Mutton Fat Jade Buddha Deer Sculpture
Chinese Antique Carved White Nephrite Mutton Fat Jade. Buddha with Deer Sculpture (estimated 1900–1910, though it could be older). 13″ tall x 9.75″ across x 6 deep. It appears the sculpture was at one time coated in protective wax (a method sometimes used with Jade), as there is some still in many of the crevices. The wax is a magnet for dirt though, as some of the photos will show. Included is a recessed wooden stand. Amazing detailing of the face, hands, ribs and cords of the neck. White Jade also known as mutton fat jade when it is a translucent (see back-lit photo #10 for opacity) white to light yellow, is a calming, grounding Nephrite jade that is said to protect from negative energies, bringing peace, harmony and luck. White Jade also helps in decision-making, as it blocks distractions, allowing for the best results to reveal themselves. Jade is extremely dense hence a 13 statue weighing 31 lbs! And cool to the touch. In this depiction of the Buddha. Siddhartha Gutama is seated peacefully on a deer. Deer are a direct reference to the Buddhas first teaching in the Deer Park, Sarnath. The deer is a symbol of many things–the personification of virtues and a character in legends and myths. The suggestion is that so wondrous was the Buddhas appearance, and peaceful his presence, that even the animals came to listen. In Buddhism, the deer symbolizes.
