In Japanese mythology and folklore, Tenjin is the Shinto kami of scholarship, the deification of a scholar, poet, and politician named Sugawara no Michizane. Ten means sky and jin means god or deity. The original meaning of Tenjin, sky deity, is almost the same as that of Raijin (a god of thunder). Cows are a popular motif at Tenjin shrines, as they are believed to be his servants. In particular, statues of a nade-ushi, “stroking cow”, are meant to cure ills if you touch them. This wonderful bronze cow is huge and was in its own shrine inside a Shinto Shrine dedicated to Tenjin (like the Kitano Shrine in Kyoto). The bronze work is outstanding with great detail on the rope and ripples on his back and face. Sits on a purple silk cushion. Length:36" x Depth:15" x Height:11". Great condition. Ask for shipping quote.
