Probably Tibet. Miniature Buddha in cast bronze gilded with the mercury technique. Under the base curiously we can see a Vajra cast in relief. The sculpture is simple rustic, the details are little or not chiseled, however the gilding is of the best quality, very thick and tends to flake.Traces of pigment on hairs and eyes. The style of the base with elephant and Buddhist Lions in front and crosses at the back, makes me think of the 15th century style. No restaurations...

It seems that there are also traces of mercury gilding in the hollows which are more brilliant than the rest of the bronze. Very heavy.Certainly later Ming or early Qing No restoration. H: 39 cm. Sometimes the Chinese craftsmen recovered gold on the declassed statues by scraping them with a scraper...

The head is carved in a grey stone that I think is limestone, it is harder than marble but it can be scratched with a steel tool. The naive sculpture seems to be made by a craftsman who was not a sculptor or a sculptor of a primitive people. It unquestionably represents a Buddha with his third eye in the middle of his forehead. There is some red pigment left in one nostril and in the corner of the mouth.The appearance of the stone seems very old...

This is a beautiful bamboo sculpture of a fisherman holding a carp in his left hand, in the right he must have been holding a rod that was lost. On his shoulders there are still some plant fibres which seem to me to be bamboo rootlets that formed a rain coat for him. The vegetal fibres are held together by a nailed bronze plate. The nails are made of iron and although they are rusty they are not original, it is a late restoration...
