This is a charming 19th c. caste iron sculpture of a Chinese boy with a book quitely reading while perched on the back of an ox. The fact that the child is reading a book, as opposed to a scroll, gives the 19th c. attribution. The zen qualities of peace and tranquility represented by the resting ox, together with the little boy focusing on what he is reading draws the viewer into the scene. The little boy detaches from the ox and the ox bares a chop mark to the bottom. The sculpture is in overall good condition with some pitting to the surface and abrasion of the bronze patinated surface. The stand is for display only (a custom stand can be fabricated upon request at a nominal charge).
Price: $525.99
