Subject:20" h bronze deity statue
Posted By: david Sun, Apr 02, 2017 IP: 2607:fea8:1d5f:fe45:

Hello, Can someone please tell me which deity this wonderful large 20" high bronze statue represents and a possible date on it? Any assistance with this query would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.

I believe this may be an image of Lakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of Wealth, who also has a following in the Buddhist religion. The latter aspect may have relevance here if anyone else also thinks your statue has somewhat of a Nepalese or Sino-Tibetan look about it.

Here's a link to further information.

Best regards,
