LOVELY BRONZE 20TH C. SHAN BUDDHA
This is a very stylish and serene buddha, just out of Burma, by way of an expatriate in Hong Kong. The iron content in the metal has produced the attractive reddish patination (actually more rust color than pinkish as in the photograph.) It was sold to me as late 19th century, but I am not sure of that, and so I am not making any claims of antiquity. Regardless, a strikingly attractive piece. It stands a substantial 18 1/2 inches high.
