Two attendants from Fudo triad, wood, Japan 18th c.
p.o.r.

Two sculptures of the boy attendants to Fudo Myoo. On the right is the cowardly and obedient Kongara Doji on the left the wicked and disobedient Seitaka Doji. Kongara is holding a lotus flower, Seitaka a stick. Each of them is standing on a rock shaped base, loosely joined by pegs on the feet. Originally there was the third figure of Fudo Myoo, now missing. Both figures are made of several pieces of wood, joined together (yosegi saiku). The wood stained black, crystal eyes. The face of Seitaka is loose, revealing the name of the figure and the name of the carver (Shiogawa Hokyo) and possibly a date. The date could not be identified. Apart from some minor rubbing of the wood and one tiny chip on the front, both pieces are in excellent condition. Height 19 1/4 inches each. Japan 18th century.
