Fine and rare gilded bronze Padmasambhava that was part of the Pan Asian Collection--a very famous collection disbursed in the 1980's. It is one of the most expensive pieces I have purchased in a long time. Purchased as part of a trade with a high level Swedish collector, who obtained it in the 1980's. At the time he was early in his collecting and did not realize the importance of keeping the "Pan Asian" sticker that originally came on the piece, and he lost it over the decades. Good size at 7 inches tall. Stones appear original. Looks to be 16th C--possibly a century earlier or later. True world-class piece.
