19th Century Chinese Bronze Ancestor Figure

About

This early 19th century seated Daoist figure was once placed upon a traditional altar table to pay tribute to ancestors past. Cast in bronze, the figure’s robes have a natural, elegant drape and the headpiece is exquisitely detailed. The seated figure would have held a place of honor in the home, surrounded by incense and offerings on the family’s altar.
