Country Group: The Himalayas (Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia and Other)
Rare type 18thC Tibetan Buddha or Bodhisattva. 5.25" tall not including custom base. Very distinctive sculpting style in the way the crown and robes are deliberately displayed asymmetrically. this bronze may be from a small Kingdom or autonomous region that had its own special way of creating their bronze sculpture that was unique to their own small area. what I do know is that I've never seen another quite like it. Exceptionally crisp casting and finishing. Very high quality overall. the condition is also exceptional, with a beautiful patina.
