1600s-1800s Japanese Wood Carving Jizo Bodhisattva or Buddha Statue Edo Period



We Japanese introduce unique items with unique aesthetics, purchasing routes, and ways that no one can imitate. It is a wood carving Jizo Bodhisattva from the Edo period in Japan. It is called "jizobosatu" in Japanese. I think this is not a craftsman who specializes in making Buddhist statues, but a monk or people carved. It is rustic and roughly carved. However, it must have been very important. The surface is glossy because it has been touched and worshiped by many people. The gorgeous Buddha statue cannot be touched by humans. However, I think that the Buddha statues that are always close to such people have healed and saved the hearts of many ordinary people. This is a Buddha statue for the common people (people below the class). This is recommended. Also, the hand is missing. The main body and the base are fixed. Together with the stand and the main body Height 21 cm Buddha statue body Measures: Width 6.4 cm, depth 5.1 cm, height 18.3 cm.
