Subject:Japonese or China Sculpture ?
Posted By: MarcG Tue, Apr 26, 2022 IP: 22.214.171.124
Could someone identify this sculpture, bought a few years ago from an Asian antique dealer? The seller told me it was Chinese. I am having trouble determining its material. It seems to be made of bronze (it is very heavy). It looks quite similar to Japanese Dogu statuettes (but these are made of clay). It may be an imitation, but then I don't see the point of casting it in bronze.
Thanks for any help.
