This is a wonderful pair of Chinese Ming Dynasty bronze Buddhist monks with wonderfully expressive individual faces. They were refreshed at some time in the past 100 years with gilding and polychrome in the same colors which they may have originally been covered in. I've had a few smaller examples, but never a pair, and not of this size or condition. One is 9.5 inches tall, the other is a bit taller. Both are very heavy. Each has a different Mudra.
