18TH C. BRONZE SHAN BUDDHA
Prize winning example of a Shan buddha, complete with halo. It has a wonderful red and green patina with some residual gilding, a lovely form, and is completely intact. Some pieces you just immediately know they're right when you see them; this is one of those. He stands 7 inches tall and is perfect for a small altar, shelf, or desk. He won a prize in a buddha contest in Thailand. I have the certificate, which goes to the lucky buyer. He is currently on a shelf in my foyer. $1000.
