Chinese Gilt Bronze of Zhen Wu


Late 19th / Early 20th Century Chinese Gilt Bronze of Zhen Wu. Seated with hand resting on knees. Wearing flowing robes, rank badge, unbound hair, & sporting Fu Manchu style facial hair. Gilt has diminished on most of bronze as seen in images. Tiny void under nose, but otherwise in excellent condition. 5 3/4" high x 3 3/4" wide x 1 3/4" deep. Purchased in China during WWII. Ex: E. Rose collection, Florida. Zhen Wu is one of the higher-ranking Taoist deities. He is revered as a powerful god, able to control the elements and capable of great magic. He is particularly revered by martial artists and is patron saint of Hebei, Manchuria and Mongolia. As some Cantonese and Min Nan speakers (particularly Hokkien) fled into the south from Hebei with the Song dynasty, Xuan Wu is also widely revered in Fujian and Guangdong as well as among the Chinese diaspora.
