Antique Chinese Hand Carved 12 Weituo Guardian Gold Gilt Red Lacquered Wood
Wonderfully detailed antique hand carved wooden figure of the temple guardian Boddhisattva Weituo (Wei Tuo), with gold gilt and red lacquer, circa 18th century. Weituo is one of eight divine protectors in Chinese Buddhism. Statues like this usually appeared in temples or monasteries. Wei Tuo protects written wisdom and laws (the spiritual aspects of Buddhism) rather than being concerned with day-to-day affairs. Given its age, the statue shows significant wear. There are many areas of lacquer chipping and several cracks in the lacquer and wood itself, the most prominent of which are a long crack in the middle of the figure and chipping on Weituo’s hands. Please inspect the pictures carefully. But the lacquer and gold gilt are still very much present throughout. The carving detail is truly amazing and this sculpture truly represents the magnificence of Chinese art. Height: 12 (30.5 cm). Width: 5.75 (14.6 cm). Weight: 33 oz (935 gr).
