It has been a while since I have posted, and again, thank you all for opinions...
I came across this bronze Buddha head approximately 6" tall. Now I have seen similar examples, most looking to be modern casts.. but this one caught my eye.. while I did not get an opportunity to look under magnification before purchasing, it was inexpensive so figured would get it then take a look..
Well, interesting indeed.. the bronze has area of Cuprite, Malachi and appears small amounts of Azutite on top of the layers.. ( pictured area selected near chin)
No question in my mind, this is no new bronze Buddha bust..
I am though looking for opinions about age.. I have read that these layers form no earlier than 200-500 years?
I would be grateful for input for the forum..
Thank you in advance
