Asia Week auction, WTF18: where is a ‘Tibeto-Chinese’ statue from?

Robert R. Bigler also has a ‘Tibeto-Chinese‘ copper Vaishravana/Duo Wen Tian.

This invites the same question: was it acquired in Tibet, or in China, or in Chinese-occupied Tibet; is it a conflict antiquity?

Vaishravana (Duowentian). Tibeto-Chinese, Yuan, circa 14th Century. Copper alloy. Height: 10.2 inches (26 cm).
