Wooden sculpture of Jizo, Japan 18th century.
$ 1,000

Jizo is standing, holding up his left hand in which he holds a jewel. His right hand is hanging down along his body. Soft wood with traces of black lacquer on gesso. On the bare wood Buddhist texts have been written in black ink. It would have been covered by the lacquer and hence would have been invisible. The black lacquer rubbed off for the larger part. Hand and feet cut separately. Height 19 inches. Japan 18th century. Some small, old chips. On plexi glass base.
