For sale here is a fine antique Qing dynasty late 1700s to early 1800s Chinese finely detailed cast iron bust of the diety Kwan Yin aka Guanyin or Avalokitesvara. This Chinese diety has been for centuries depicted as androgynous as the Boddhisattva of Compassion. This is a particularly fine example with exquisitely detailed molding and great character to the features! Just look at the detail in her hair, her crown, and her clothing at the shoulders! Also, the years have given this particular piece a really lovely patina that I have not disturbed. Measures 8-1/4" tall by 6" wide and 3" deep at base, and quite heavy for it's size. Unmarked as is usually the case for this period and material. Excellent antique condition with some expected wear and oxidation as shown in photos - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
