Granite Jizo Bosatsu Bodhisattva Buddha Kannon Edo

Figuratively sculpted granite depiction of a standing Jizo Bosatsu, a hoju (sacred jewel) held in both hands. Mid-Edo Period ca. 1750. Desirable softening of the lines and contours, with a few points of very minor old loss. Slight lichen accumulation.

Height: 32.1 cm
Width: 13.3 cm
Depth: 11.0 cm

A charmingly rotund interpretation of the classic figuratively sculpted standing Jizo stone, simply rendered in a fine-grained granite. A charming piece, perfect either for the garden or for indoor display.
