Old and Rare 18th Century Alabaster Chinese Warrior / Guardian Temple Statue / Head, China
This is indeed a special Warrior / Guardian Head. It is a typical image used at the entrances of Chinese temple compounds. Well carved with a fierce expression and detailed features. Alabaster stone. On a museum mount. Certainly one of a kind and in perfect condition. There is felt on the bottom of the stand. For male or female art collectors who want a dynamic piece for their den or study. It’s expression is of strength, sheer power and determination.
Busts of this size, age and composition have sold at many thousands at auction. I acquired it from a personal acquaintance who resides outside Beijing. I have had this in my personal collection for many years and I am still impressed!
For the Serious Collector only.
