Wonderful Chinese Han Dynasty (206 BC to AD 220) figure of a chimera. The mythical creature is whimsically posed with it's head turned over it's shoulder and it's mouth wide with it's tongue out. It's feet are hooves and on it's back are wings. Made of bronze and gilded, beautiful patina, eyes are made of inlaid turquoise. Size; 5 1/4" wide x 4 3/8" high.
