The bust is extremly well carved and a really good weight, over 1.3 kilos! The whole structure stands at 12 inches high, but he feels bigger. I think he has probably sat somewhere too warm and dry at some stage, he's showing signs of cracking.
But this is minimal and with good care, he'll be fine. I was told he was an emperor, but he might be an Immortal. He is very serene, and confident.
The beard suggests a very wise man.. Please see the photos and feel free to ask any questions. He will make a significant impact wherever he next settles. Thanks for looking and i'm always open to reasonable offers. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian/Oriental Antiques\Chinese\Figurines & Statues".
