19th century cypress wood netsuke representing standing Daruma (founder of Zen Buddhism) enveloped in his monastic robe dramatically billowing in the wind. The sculpture is skillfully carved in ittobori (one cut) style characteristic of Hida Province with extremely clever use of natural wood shape, structure and texture as elements of design. Excellently conveyed expression of extreme concentration on Daruma’s face, beautiful patina . Height 1 11/16 inches.
