Antique Chinese sculpture in wood. H. 46 cm x W. 15 cm x D. 15 cm

Beautiful Chinese sculpture depicting a teacher of martial arts. The artist has managed to capture the dance-like martial moves. The lines of the body and the position of the feet and hands give a sense of movement and lightness, highlighting the status of the art of fighting. Balance is the fundamental part of the work, and peace is the emotion expressed by the facial features.

Still with traces of polychrome finish, the sculpture is in good condition for its age, with signs of wear on its base and bottom.

Era: 19th century.
Dynasty: Qing (1644-1911).
Material: wood.
Country: China.
