Seated female Buddhist deity, possibly Kichijoten a.k.a. Kisshoten, the right hand holding a hoju (sacred jewel) and the left hand forming the segan-in mudra symbolizing the fulfillment of the vow, sculpted figurally from a gray-hued igneous stone. Mid- to late-Edo Period ca. 1800. Very minor old loss.

Heavy-set and of gentle mien, a female Buddhist deity of uncertain identity.
