VIETNAMESE MYTHOLOGICAL DEITIES
Here we present a pair of wood carved polychrome lacquer painted gold gilt folk mythological dieties. One is a 'One eyed,' figure and, in some cosmological beliefs, having one eye after sacrificing the other to gain cosmic wisdom, is a constant goal throughout mythology. Vietnam, early 20th century. These two figures stand 14.25" tall x 5.5" wide x 5.5" deep.
