Bronze, very heavy at 25 pounds. Roughly 33” x 9.5”. I think I paid between $40-65 at an online auction.
From an owner, not a shop.
My name is Luciana, I'm an appraiser for Mearto and it is a pleasure for me to be able to help you.
A beautiful bronze standing Buddha statue on a lotus stand. The style of the piece is of the Tang dynasty era, with a full face, long ear lobes and scrolled hair style. Beautiful, finely defined facial features convey a sense of calm and serenity. The mudra is "offering protection".
The valuation is based on prices in the Asian art market at auction houses and antique shops around the world, we consult several databases.
We apologize for the delay in the appraisal.
