Late 18th to early 19th century Chinese bronze sculpture of Guandi holding a long halberd in one hand and stroking his beard with the other. Guandi is a legendary and supposedly a historical person, one of the Three Heroes of Han Dynasty, who was later raised to immortality and deified as God of War. Strong image with great thoughtful face, excellent casting, beautiful flow to the lines of his robe, wonderful chiseling of textile patterns. Beautiful variegated patina, wear to his face - might have been used on a home altar, wonderful feel of age, pleasantly heavy. Height 4 1/8 inches.
