From the Northern Zhou period 557-581 CE Throckmorton is showing a Seated Maitreya Bodhisattva with an oval plump face and columnar style plump body sitting on a throne in European posture with his feet on two lotus flowers. This represents the Maitreya, the future Buddha. According to Buddhism Maitreya’s future Kingdom will be joyful and happy. A Bodhisattva wearing a long scarf and long string of jewelry is an old tradition from Northern Wei but the complicated configuration of the jewelry seen on this figure was an alteration of Northern Zhou artists.
