We are pleased to offer for auction a Chinese bronze statue of the Kui Xing, the servant deity of the God of Literature, Wen Chang.  Also known as the Chief of the Stars, Kui Xing is considered a saint of human fortune, especially in regards to examinations.  The statue is quite a rare and unusual depiction of Kui Xing, as he is shown with almost dragon-like features.   

The statue dates from the Late Ming to Early Qing Period and has wear consistent with age.  There are the expected minor losses and condition issues, like those to the fingers on the left hand, and the statue has been mounted on a base secured through the right foot.  Usually Kui Xing is depicted carrying a brush and standing on a dragon-fish.  

The statue measures approximately 11.1 inches tall including the base.  Overall it displays very nicely.
