Japanese wooden Daruma Bodhidharma pattern Meiji-Taisho
Sold

Mature wooden pattern coated with lacquer, used for making paper-mache dolls of Daruma (Bodhidharma), - "Father of Zen Buddhism", dated back to Meiji-Taisho period, early 20th century.

Label at bottom, stuck on by the previous owner for its provenance, as "Koshigaya type (Saitama Prefecture), Osawa, Koshigaya city".

A "hidden" Japanese Mingei folk art piece today. Fine antique condition as is, with peeling of lacquer and expected flaws.


approx. 21cm in height, 19-17.5cm in diameter (8.3in, 7.5-6.9in)
