Chinese Ming Bronzes:  Buddha and Guanyin
Sold

These two original Chinese bronze figures date from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) along with the gilt bronze screens behind them.

The bronze Buddha measures 7 3/4 inches tall by 5 3/4 inches wide by 3 3/4 inches in depth. (19.5 cm x 14.5 cm x 10.0 cm). The Buddha has a large percentage of it's original gilding remaining as do both of the gilt bronze backs. The Buddha also has a Wan symbol on his chest.

The bronze Guanyin or Avalokitesvara measures 8.25 inches tall by 5 inches wide by 3.5 inches in depth. (21 cm x 12.5 cm x 8.5 cm).

We are offering both of the bronzes and both of the finely detailed gilt bronze backs as a group (4 pieces -2 figures and 2 screen backs -all at one price.)
