An extremely rare and impressive bronze figure of a young Buddha seated on a Lion, Ming Dynasty 1368-1644 AD.

The Buddha is massive and heavy, even for the size, made in a bronze alloy now finely patinated with the typical uncleaned dark bronze tone.

The figure is bald, clad in robes and with a serene facial expression. The Lion highly detailed and with a fearsome expression, engraved in the typical Ming manor. Interior is very encrusted and oxidated.

Size: ca. 30 cm. wide, 15 cm. deep and 26 cm. high. The figure weighs c. 7,3 kilograms and very imposing.

Condition: Choice, fine smooth surfaces, and old dings and wear but no severe corrosion, damage or casting flaws.

Ex. Old Danish Collection
