 This authentic Chinese antique carved wood figure depicting the deity, Guandi, standing in armored robes and while stroking his beard and standing upon a pedestal base.
Guandi, historical name Guan Yu, also called Guan Gong or Wudi, Chinese god of war whose immense popularity with the common people rests on the firm belief that his control over evil spirits is so great that even actors who play his part in dramas share his power over demons.
