Gilt Bronze Figure of the Buddha


Gilt gold on bronze
Height: 7.25 inches on stand
Chinese workmanship
Circa Ming Dynasty (明朝), 1368-1644


This remarkable gilt gold on bronze figure depicts the seated Buddha resting on A Lotus shaped base with hands held in praying position. The piece is well cast and quite heavy for it’s size of 7.25 inches on the wooden stand. The overall condition is excellent with a majority of the gilding remaining. In our opinion the subject matter, workmanship and material suggest a Ming period date for this fine work of art.
