A bronze Avalokitesvara or Guanyin was applied with gold leaf on the surface.
He was well preserved in original condition with the gold pigment when the ancient incense smoking had covered and obscured the brilliant surface.
Two fingers were missing in ancient time. One was the little finger on the left hand. Another was the third finger of the right hand.

It was from an old collection. The later-made wood was in old look and proved the enduring time.

Date: Early Ming periods, 14th/15th century.

Height including wood stand, 28cm.
Height without stand, 25.2cm.
Weight: 2726 gram.
