A large gilt-bronze figure of a Daoist deity
Ming Dynasty
the finely-cast figure seated, holding a tablet in both hands before his chest, his downcast eyes, furrowed eyebrows and tight lips forming a fierce expression, with a long beard falling down his chest, his hair tied up high beneath his crown and secured by a pin incised with a wan symbol, wearing a flowing dhoti with varying floral borders, falling in loose folds over the legs partly revealing the shoes, a patterned shawl draped around his shoulders and falling to the base, the wood stand carved as a throne
Quantity: 2
