I RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS AT A SOUTHEASTERN COLORADO ANTIQUE AUCTION ALONG WITH MANY OTHER ASIAN ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES!!! THIS IS A VERY HEAVY CAST IRON STATUE. I BELIEVE IT TO BE AN ORIENTAL, TIBETIAN STYLE QUAN YIN BUDDHA. IT IS FINELY CAST, NO ROUGH PLACES LIKE YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A CHEAP CAST IRON REPRODUCTION!!! I AM NOT SURE OF THE AGE, BUT IT LOOKS TO BE VERY OLD, SOME SURFACE OXIDATION & PAINT LOSS. T IS NO STRUCTUAL DAMAGE!!! IT STANDS OVER 9" THE FIGURE & THE BASE LOOK TO BE CAST IN 2 PIECES & THE STATUE IS FORGED ONTO THE BASE - NO SCREWS USED. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DYNASTY THIS IS FROM. THE PHOTOS SHOW AN ORANGE CAST FROM PHOTO FLASH IT IS MORE OF A ANTIQUES GOLDEN CAST. THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
