Buddhist Statues at Kedleston Hall

This is the first article in a series where we share some of the Buddhist artefacts held at Kedleston Hall in the UK. Kedleston Hall is open to the public and is maintained by the National Trust. A range of Buddhist artifacts were collected by the Curzon family and are held at Kedleston Hall.

Below are images of Buddhist statues. We have been unable to place the deity featured in the last image. From the sword we assume that the central figure is a form of Manjushri. But we are unsure about which form because of the presence of three sets of arms and three heads, which are not typically present. We are also unsure about the smaller figure seated on the Manjushri’s knee.
