Country Group:The Himalayas (Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia and Other)
Item id: 8536

On his custom metal stand crafted by a metal sculptor, this very unique figure stands 10.5" high (figure alone is close to 7 inches). The base measures 2.5" tall x 4" x 3". He is a unique figure that has been shaped by a unusual history. As the march progressed, he was flattened, burned, and finally buried under the rubble by the Russians, when they marched through Mongolia in the late 1920's and destroyed over 2000 temples in a day. I do not know what his original shape and purpose was, but almost looks as if he was a celestial figure that has now, after the trauma of war fallen to earth and is leaning back, getting stoned. He now leans back in a room filled with thousand joyful Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and Blissful Hindu deities, and energetic fierce protective deities. He certainly stands out from the crowd. He was likely shot in the stomach You can see evidence if you look in the middle of his belly- you can see the distinctive deep classic bullet indentation in his stomach that almost looks like a belly button. The original figure is probably at least 19th century, as if this was done to him in the 1920's., and he probably had age to him when this occurred, this only makes sense.
