Standing Fudo-Myo (Skt. Acalanatha) with characteristic attributes of sword and rope held in the right and left hands, respectively, sculpted in relief against a flame-motif mandorla from sandstone. Early-Meiji Era ca. 1875. Excellent condition, with only extremely minor old loss. Light lichen accumulation.

Height: 45 cm
Width: 27 cm
Depth: 20 cm
Packaged weight: 23 kg.

On the back of this Fudo-Myo is incised the name of an Edo-Period yakuza, Omaeda Eigoro (1793~1874), famous in particular for Robinhood-style exploits on behalf of the poor. An historically significant and highly collectible stone, to be sure.
