Kiri Wood Painted Dish by Seigyu, Buddhas Hand
A painting of a Bushukan (Buddhas hand fruit) by Kitamura Seigyu on a kiri-wood tray created by Heian Fukuyama enclosed in the original wooden box signed by both artists. It is roughly 10-1/2 inches (26.5 cm) diameter. The center of the dish, one of three joints in the wood, may have been re-glued, and the bottom of the box made of wide grained cedar, has shrunk considerably.
Seigyu (1891-1970) was born in Hakodate, Hokaido. He came to Kyoto to study under his uncle Kitamura Shunzan, then under Takeuchi Seiho. Exhibited with the Bunten/Teiten National Exhibitions.
