Bronze Baby Krisha Statue by Yamazaki Hiroyuki

The title of the work is, Tenpyo no Shirabe, or the tune of the Tenpyo era which is during the 8th century (Nara Period). The Tenpyo period was an interesting period in Japanese history where various cultures from across Asia strongly influenced Japanese culture of the time and elevated it to the level that we see today. From patterns in fabrics to the standard lifestyle accessories, the Tenpyo era was the first of many renaissances in Japanese art and culture.

The work shown is a child like figure playing a flute and is dressed in the style that bodhisattvas and Buddhist images usually are dressed. The work is done in bronze / patinated brass material. The work was done by Yamazaki Hiroyuki, a noted Buddhist sculptor who has been active since the late 20th century. Recently, the Franklin Mint of Japan has used his original works in producing a series of Buddhist sculptures for collectors of Franklin Mint production (Franklin Mint exists in Japan as Franklin Mint Japan where the company produces fine reproductions and collectibles of Japanese art).

The work comes with an original box with the inscription done by the artist and is signed and sealed.

Age: 1970-1990.
