This seated image probably represents a Chinese deity or folk hear, although there are no iconographic symbols to specifically identify who it is. He sits regally with both hands resting upon is knees, wearing full robes which extend to his shoes and held at the waist with an official's belt. His unbound hair is swept back to continue down his back. He is covered through out with gold pigmentation. He sits on a flat scalloped base.
