Sitting rakan, Bronze, Japan early 19th c.
p.o.r.

The rakan sits with folded legs, his left hand resting on his bared belly, the right hand in a pointing gesture. His face shows a rather grim frontal expression that becomes soft, when seen from the side. Darkly patinated bronze with a few minor casting flaws. The index finger of his right hand missing. On the back a long engraved inscription including the name of the caster, the names of temples in Kyoto, the names of a layman and a nun and the date of 1807. Height 22.5 inches. Beautiful, expressive piece with good patina. On wooden base.
