Standing Seitaka Douji, one of Fudo-Myo's two child attendants, figurally sculpted from a gray-hued igneous stone. Clearly dated to the seventh year of the Kyoho Era (1722), mid-Edo Period. Loss of the attributes originally held in the hands; otherwise, very good condition, with only very minor old loss. Slight traces of polychrome.

Height: 47 cm
Width: 18 cm
Depth: 15 cm

A well-executed Seitaka Douji, stone examples of which are exceedingly uncommon, with an irrefutable mid-Edo Period manufacture date.
