Large and beautiful Tang Buddha head out of a Beverly Hills estate. Purchased by the previous owner in 2001 from a high end New York Gallery for 5,000 dollars. Beautifully carved- Looks to have good age and to not be a recent copy, but I am not expert on dating this type of piece (early Chinese stone). The gilding and surface coloring may be later. Head is approximately 9.75 inches tall, on stand height is 11 7/8 inches.
