Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



Hand-carved marble head of Guanyin, the Buddhist bodhisattva associated with compassion.  The expression is priceless and the headgear / crown with an engraved Buddha is a real bonus.


Acquired from a jeweler in Beverly Hills California who has had it since the 1970s, when he purchased it from a reputable antique dealer in Hebei.


The hardwood stand is elegant and most likely rosewood.


No chips or cracks in the marble head.  There is a vein of black marble that appears on the back of the head . . .  only adding to its beauty. The marble head is permanently attached to the hardwood base.


A true piece of elegance.


This item has SOLD.  Thanks M.S. !!!
