Late Meiji (1900s - 1910s) Japanese scroll painted with red ink on paper depicting the Wisdom King Fudo Myo-o standing on rockery with a sword in his right hand and a lasso in the left, and raging flames behind him. Fudo Myo-o (“Acala" in Sanskrit and meaning "immovable") is a dharmapala seen as a protective deity particularly in Shingon traditions of Japan, his face with wrinkled brow expresses extreme wrath, left eye looking askance, lower teeth biting down the upper lip. Fudo Myo-o is said to be a powerful deity who protects the faithful by burning away all impediments and defilements, thus aiding them towards enlightenment. Wonderful strong painting, exceptionally well painted face perfectly capturing the essence of the deity, beautiful subtle use of ink washes. Signed TOMOTO OGAMORI followed by a red seal of the artist, some creases, paper mounts (some wear), lacquered scroll ends.
