In good condition
Antique Chinese sculpture made of polychrome wood. Time has not detracted from its beauty, in fact it has given the piece an almost bronze-coloured red. In China, red on a face symbolises the sacredness of the person. The left hand rests on the knee and the right hand is raised and holds a vial, a symbol often present in Chinese iconography. Close up, you can see the pictorial elements which adorn the clothing,. The facial expression is that of stately vitality, accentuated by the different positions of the pupils. The layer of lacquer and colour visible in some points show the value of the sculpture.
