Subject:Bronze Kannon Seal/Mould Scripture Any Clue?
Posted By: Gakusei Thu, Nov 23, 2017 IP:

I show you a small rather solid bronze sculpture of Kannon. The bronze is about 9 cm high, max. 1,5 cm thick and weights 189 g.
The back is hollow with incised chinese characters. It looks to me like a mould. Is a translation of the text possible? What use could this item have had?
Thanks in advance
