19th century Japanese Bizen stoneware okimono modeled as seated Daruma - the founder of Zen Buddhism - wearing his monk’s robe with a hood, leaning on one hand, the other on his knee. Excellent modeling with great facial expression of surprise and fine detailing. Deep red characteristic Bizen color to the surface, black areas of soot accumulation giving it exceedingly beautiful patina, in excellent condition. Height 2 3/4 inches.
