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 was was signed and made by the bronze artist Shiba in the early Showa Period C.1935. Comes in the original paulownia wood box which is also signed. 8" long and 4" deep.
