Children in Japan will sometimes attempt to summon the Baku in the middle of the night to devour their nightmares and motifs of him are commonly found in bedrooms. All hand-carved with incredible attention to detail. Mounted on a high quality custom iron stand. Edo age (1615- 1868)

Size: 19" L x 6.5" W x 10" H (15" total height on stand)
