18thC or a bit earlier. Large thickly cast gilt Chinese Buddha of Compassion head- -likely broken off during the cultural revolution in the 1960's. Each small Buddha head is distinctive and a true work of art in and of itself. Never seen another like it. HEAD ALONE is roughly 11 inches tall by 7 inches wide and quite heavy. Rare, commanding survivor, I've never seen another like it in any size, let alone in this very large version-original statue would have been incredible! On its custom base it stands 15 inches.
