Wooden fragment of a seated male Shinto god. Late-Heian/early-Kamakura Period ca. 1100—1250. Old loss, due largely to extensive insect damage; faint traces of original polychrome.

Overall height, including Edo-Period wooden stand: 47.0 cm
Height of Shinzo figure only: 32.8 cm.

A thoroughly classic example of late-Heian/early-Kamakura Shinto sculpture.
