Very beautiful Amateyus, or Bodhisattva of long life, made of brass or bronze. Purchased in Mongolia just as it was opening to the west close to 15 years ago. Based on the wonderful smooth patina and associated wear, I would guess that it is close to 100 years old. It is a quality piece made for devotional purposes. The size is quite large at 15.5 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide at the knees. It is very hard to find an authentic antique Mongolian piece of this size and quality which is not extraordinarily expensive. This one is quite inexpensive for what it is.
