Antique Japanese Museum Quality Temple Dragon Transom
Sold, Thank You

Rare and exceptional dragon 'ramma' transom from the late Meiji Period c. 1900. Superb carving of a dragon in the celestial realm surrounded by buddhist clouds all carved in great detail and flow. When a carp swims up a waterfall and makes it over the top, it turns into a dragon that roams the celestial realm as the protector of the Buddha's teachings. 3D claws and eyebrows as well as the head which stands out in relief from the body. The buddhist swirl above the head finishes off a masterpiece that belongs in a museum. 28" tall x 68" long. Condition excellent. Shipping from California warehouse.
