This life-size bronze with gold highlights of the Chinese General Guandi upon horseback brandishing his sword as his beard flies in the wind. The horse is resting upon the ground with bonzi like tree below the front hooves as he rears back in an action pose. Guandi, a diety, is the 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.
Guandi is not only a natural favorite of soldiers but has been chosen patron of numerous trades and professions.
Homes which display Guandi are protected by the God.
