ANTIQUE GILT BRONZE FIGURE OF BUDDHA

For your consideration, from a Private Estate Collection, Canada, is a superb early Chinese or Tibetan figure of Buddha, emblazoned in a fire gilding over the original heavy copper casting.  The patina is superb on this piece.  The robe ends are finely incised with a delicate engraving.

Amitayus, also known as the Buddha of boundless life, is largely associated with longevity.  He is mostly depicted sitting and holding in his hands a vessel containing the nector of immortality.

From a large collection of Tibetan artwork formed since the 1930s.

Measures 6.25 inches (16 cm) high.
