A relatively heavy vintage bronze or bronzed metal (we can’t decide) desk weight model of a deity sitting upon a lion.
This item was described as bronze when we acquired it but we are not one hundred per cent certain. The price asked reflects our uncertainty.
Possibly Asian in origin, the more you look at the model, the more detail you see. We have tried to show this in the photographs but with the limited success. The deity is depicted with, we believe, long hair and at the back a type of shawl with embossed floral detail on it. To the front, the deity is holding a scroll in his left hand, and possibly some other item in his right hand. We have tried to research this figure, but could find no information.
The deity has been lightly cleaned only, in order to retain the patina, and might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.
The figure (and lion) stands just over 3in high and weighs just over 400g. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first, or earlier, part of last century.
