‘Kongara-doji’ (Kimkara in Sanskrit, meaning servant or slave) as the one of two little boy chief attendants of ‘Fudou Myoo’ (Acala).
Quite a unique type of Japanese Buddhist statue as strangely somehow taste like Western Christian icon, but moreover like similar contingency with the depth of Francis Bacon’s works or perhaps the unconsciousness of botched restoration of Fresco in Spain (?!) as personally.
Fine carving in aesthetic antique condition, with dented face and some aged worm-eaten texture. approx. H 16cm (6.29in)
