    Description

    There are three groups with sixteen Bodhisattvas. Among these three groups, one group is headed by Samantabhadra (Universal Goodness). He is important as the leader of sixteen Bodhisattvas. He is not less important than the Future Buddha, Maitreya who is the head of the two other lists of Bodhisattvas.

    Here Samantabhadra is represented in a seated pose holding a full blown lotus in each hand. He is shown with a crown, ornaments and precious garments. He holds chintamani (jewel) in his hands. He is seated on a single lotus base and the back is decorated with conch shells; a symbol of the proclamation of the Buddha's teachings. The conch symbolizes the truth of the Dharma.

    The arch of the piece was made using a process called repoussé, the process of ornamenting metallic surfaces with designs in relief hammered out from the back by hand.  The arch is removable from the piece along with the two lotus flowers on either side of Samantabhadra.
