Well-detailed deeply cast shrine figure of Guan Yin. The ornate Guan Yin rests on a lotus blossom with a shield background.

A very heavy bronze casting has a rich patina where the gold of the bronze shines through where it has been worn. The casting is deep and exact. There is a crispness to the edges and the detail is very complex and elaborate. The back has a channel from the manufacturer and is plain. The flat base, which has tool marks, is elaborate with facets and indentations. The statue is heavy and feels very smooth to the touch. There are no marks or labels.

MEASUREMENTS
5 ½” (14 cm) tall x 2” (5.1 cm) wide.
Weighs 12.8 oz (365 g)

CONDITION
There are no breaks, cracks, or dents. There is wear to the outer edges where handled. This lets the golden bronze show through.

A well-cast shrine figure of Guan Yin with good line quality and depth.
