19th century Japanese ceramic statue of standing Daruma (Boddhidharma - the founder of Zen Buddhism) enveloped in monastic robe, and holding a hossu (fly whisk) in his hand. Superb sculpting - see the beautiful flow of his robe and well defined facial features. Absolutely fascinating painting of his face - staring fierce eyes with white enamel, wonderful depiction of his facial hair and excellently conveyed expression of thoughtful concentration. Old cracking to the tip of the nose, stabilized now. Bottom shows ceramic body, some expected wear to enamel. Fantastic sculpture. Height 9 1/8 inches.
