Subject:Wondering what this statue is and its value
Posted By: Fri, Jun 01, 2012 IP: 18.104.22.168
I have an Asian statue that I purchased a few years back at a store that sells antiques. I knew nothing about it at that time except that I liked it. Before selling it I first wanted to know what it is that I am selling and its value. And where to sell it.
Here is a little information about the statue. The statue seems to be carved out of wood because when I look at the bottom I can see the grain. There are also cracks like a piece of wood. It could be covered in some sort of plaster because as you can see from the photos, there are chips broken off. The plaster or paint has layers of black, red and gold. It stands about 18 inches high and is about 7 inches at its widest point and 7 inches at its deepest point.
Unfortunately the pictures I just tried to load are too big and my computer savvy husband is sleeping. I added the three that are small enough but they also are poor. If it is possible to e-mail me direct then I can send the larger, better pictures.
