Daruma standing tall, wrapped tightly in his garment, the tips of his feet just peeping out. One tip of his garment floating, as if in the wind. The face deeply cut and expressive. Keyaki (zelkova) wood carved in ittobori style. Japan, Meiji era, 19th century. Mingei (folk art).

H ca. 13-1/2 inches

Natural stress crack, typical for keyaki wood, few very old chips in the back that were probably already there at the time of the carving, all in all very good condition.
