Wonderful and unique “Baby Buddha” – looks like an old man- note the shape of his body (kind of like my grandpa), with his kind old face, spindly legs, saggy butt, and pot belly. I suspect that the sculptor may have used himself as a model. Looks to be extremely early- Yuan to early Ming 13 to 15thC based on the sculpting and casting as compared to other Chinese bronzes I have handled. No one who has seen him has ever encountered another like him. Nice size at 8" tall.
