Country Group: The Himalayas (Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia and Other)
18thC or earlier thick repousse- Probably the top 2 heads from a monumental 11 headed copper repousse statue. From the mansion on the principle estate on the island of Lanai Larry Ellison bought bought 98 percent of the island of Lanai from its previous owner David Murdock in 2012 (another Billionaire). The main estate was filled with Asian antiques, but not Japanese, and not to the standard of Ellison, so most of the antiques were sold off at that time. Most went through high end auction houses. I was fortunate enough to purchase this piece. Head is 9.5 inches tall, height on custom stand is 12.75 inches. Best quality.
