Bronze Tibetan Yab-Yum Statue

Yab-Yum — literally "father-mother" in Tibetan — is the union of wisdom and compassion. The male deity sits in the lotus position as the female consort wraps herself around him. Together, they are able to create worlds though the combination of their separate, holy powers.

Dimensions: 7 x 4.5 x 4 in.

Date: c. 1910
