Motif of Tenjin god (The deified spirit of 'Sugawara no Michizane') revered in Shinto as the god of learning in Japan.
Antique clay dolls with wooden parts of sword, scepter, and movable head, in burnt condition through the long history, with such ghastly attraction as its aesthetic as is.
(In tattered condition as well, so that there is some possibility to be in more peeled-off condition during the shipment, by way of caution in advance.)

approx. H 10cm (3.93in), W 11cm (4.33in), D 2.5cm (0.98in)
