This is an unique rendition of the Daruma carved from a natural burl wood. The head is masterfully carved and finished while the rest of the wood is left in it's natural state and cleverly depicts his flowing robes. The head is carved in the style known as itta-bori carving, which means "one knife carving". It is mounted on a fine dark wood base. Very good condition with no chips or cracks. It measures 6 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" high and is 2 3/4" deep. The stand is 6 1/4" by 3 3/4" by 1 1/2". We date it to the late Meiji period, circa 1885-1910.
