Old and Rare 18th Century Alabaster Chinese Warrior / Guardian Temple Statue / Head, China

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

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.
