Six-armed Nyoirin Kannon Bosatsu in characteristic seated pose of royal ease, defining attributes held in four hands, sculpted in relief from tuff, an igneous stone composed primarily of volcanic ash. Meiji Era ca. 1900. Very minor old loss. Variegated lichen accumulation and traces of polychrome.

Height: 37 cm
Width: 25 cm
Depth: 20 cm.

Japanese stone depictions of Nyoirin Kannon Bosatsu typically have just two arms, so this six-armed example is something of a rarity. A well-executed piece bursting with charm.
