The best new piece I have come across in a very long time! An 18/19thC Mongolian copper repoussé in vivid polychrome. This is a protective deity atop a "man" and "horse" (representing ignorance and delusion, respectively). He is in a very rare and distinctive asymmetrical position in which he is almost waving to the crowd of well-wishers. Almost certainly a marriage of base and figure--though they work perfectly. This piece measures 14 inches tall x 10.75 inches wide x 5 inches deep. Beautifully sculpted in many parts and carefully assembled and painted. Almost seems alive. I've never seen another like it in 30+ years of collecting.
