Small Buddhist altar showing Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, in formal attire, standing on a four-legged pedestal and backed by a mandorla. Bronze, with dark-green patina with traces of reddish areas. China, 18th century, maybe earlier. Height: 5" (12,2 cm). Erosion, otherwise very good condition. NOTE: the style of this altar is typical of the style of Buddhist altars of the Northern Wei and Tang dynasties period.
