This interesting bronze sculpture belonged to my great aunt. I think she acquired it in China. She told us that the man wearing a horned mask and holding the incense urn high above his head, was a Chinese ghost chaser or one who frightens away evil spirits. We children used to call it the Ghost Buster.
The bronze sculpture weighs 25 lbs and measures 23" in height, 14" in width and 11" in depth. The bronze has a lot of patina and I have done nothing to clean it except wipe the dust from storage off of it. While doing that I noticed that the Ghost Buster has a dragon faintly tatooed on his tummy.
The sculpture is covered with hand applied embellishments of cranes, clouds and flowering plants.
There is some tarnish and oxidation on the metal. The incense bowl has some tarnish inside. The base underneath shows the two old bolts that hold the feet of the statue in place. I have pictures of both of these parts if you need to see them. Ruby Lane only allows 9 photos here.
There is a tiny bit of damage with one applied crane on the back of the bowl not having his head. I included a picture of this damage with an arrow pointing to it.
