A wooden statue of Guanyin, 18th-19th C
A statue of Guanyin, Qing period, 18th or 19th century. Wood with lacquer, 40cm. The statue is almost completely covered with a thick dark layer formed by sooth and smoke. At places were it flaked off the original colours are visible. Judging the lacquer I prefer 18th over 19th century. Condition: of the left side of the base two sections have been broken and refastened. This was old damage as the spots where wood is missing show the same sooted surface as the rest of the statue. It has been glued in a somewhat hasty way. Altogether a charming statue with good athmosphere and good age.
