18th Century Museum Quality Edo Shrine Tenjin c.1795
Having died in exile after being falsly accused, Sugawara Michizane (845-903) was deified by the emperor in 923 AD as the shinto god, Tenjin. Tenjin shrines were soon erected throught Japan. This antique Japanese Tenjin is from a Nara shinto shrine. Bits of wood are missing but this is natural due to age. The whole piece is stunning with great impact. The wood is Japanese cedar (sugi). Rice paper is still peeling from parts of the body. No worm damage. c.1795. (25" x 22" x 14") (62cm x 56cm x 35cm). Shipping/Insurance included in price.
