Early Chinese guardian figure. Hard to date because it is so unique, but based on the casting and overall look it appears to be at least 15thC or and possibly much earlier. Lots of personality in this delightful fellow. This piece stands proudly at 6.5 inches tall and 8.5 inches on its custom base. Note the outstretched highly detailed bird covering his head. His face is more endearing and humorous than frightening. No one who has seen it has seen anything like it before-all agree it looks extremely old--at least Ming and likely earlier. Width 1.75", Depth 2"
