13th-16th Century Japanese Old Wood Carving Armed God / Buddha Statue



It is an old Japanese wooden Buddha statue. It has been a long time since the main body was produced. Probably from the 13th to 16th centuries. This is the statue of the god who came in armor. In Buddhism, there are gods called "ten-bu". God also exists in Japanese Buddhism. The gods are responsible for protecting the Buddhist world. This item is also "ten-bu". Since it is a simple carving, it is thought that it is not a Buddhist statue carved by a Buddhist priest, but a Buddhist statue carved by the people with prayer. As a reference, I have posted a photo of a book in a museum that features the shinsou. These are very rustic carvings. But they are all nice. It's very valuable, but I want many people to know the goodness of antiques, so I set the price reasonably. I recommend it. Overall size including pedestal W21cm D11.8cm H41cm Buddha statue body W15cm D9.5cm H35.7cm.
