Mahogany Seated Kuan Yin / Quanyin Statue, China
Detail: This is a solid piece of mahogany wood carved into a seated Kuan Yin, God of Compassion. A remarkable piece – not just because of the simplicity of carving – but for the elegance of the pose and serenity. Purchased from a private family in Chengdu who claims to have had it in the family since the early 1900’s. I acquired it from its second owner, an antique dealer / owner in 2001. Perfect condition and rare in this condition. For the Serious Collector.
So sorry but this gorgeous statue has been sold.
