This is a mid. 19th Century Senju Kannon Buddha. It was decorated in gold gilt over wood. The hands symbolize the one thousand hands used to save followers of the Buddhist faith. An unusual feature is the Edo era round mirror called Kokyo incorporated into the center of the nimbus used to radiate light as it reflects the back of the head. There is a chip to one edge of the nimbus. Also, there is loss to a few tools and a small head is missing from the crown, some carvings are missing, some flaws from age . It is 41.5 " tall, 13.5 " wide and 10.75 " deep.
