Simply the best! Powerful large 18/19thC Mongolian thick copper repousse FIERCE deity. He faces my bed and keeps my dreams safe. Large at 16.25 inches tall, 11 inches wide. The new custom base adds the total height to 16 inches. I recently had the base made and had the parts of the statue (such as the waist) tightened up (this type is made in parts), and the overall piece gone over by the base-maker/conservator to make sure I was doing all I could to keep this sculpture in excellent condition. Bottom of statue is is an old replacement from an old consecration ceremony--would have originally been consecrated with copper. Signs of repainting with multiple layers of polychrome over the generations, but no major repairs or loss, which is quite rare on a statue of this type and age in this size. World class statue. Not inexpensive.
