This is an absolutely lovely 18th century sculpture of Guandi or Kuan Ti , the God of War (amongst other things), seated in classic pose on a chair. Polychromed wood, with gesso and gilt and with gesso raised decoration, including a very beautifully crafted face above the belt. Traces of blue remain on the headdress and his face still retains much of the original color. 6" high. The photos show the lacquer and gilt losses better than we can describe them.
