Japanese 19th century carved and painted Dharma, or DARUMA. The entire piece is beautifully carved. The robe, shoes and bottom of the piece, however, were first covered in GOFUN (paint made from ground oyster shells)and then painted over in colored pigments. The face and chest are just carved wood and the eyes have been painted black. The figure stands 15 3/4" tall, 7" wide and is 5" deep.
