Japanese Unique and Elegant Kanon, Gifted by Emperor of Japan

About

From our recent Japanese Acquisitions Travels. Rare find. Once gifted by the Emperor of Japan. This unique and elegant Japanese framed Kannon effigy - goddess of mercy- was created with a distinct Art Deco flavour by a master midcentury artisan. The blissful Kannon -Kyusei- exhibits the "Gyan" mudra and is signed lower right. It is a rare carved, hand painted, and inlaid lacquered work of art embellished with shell, beads, and signed in gold gilt. It has an extensive and impressive provenance and signature, signed Hashimoto, with date August 12, 1952. And the extensive writing on the back tells its creation story and most importantly declares: This work of art Kannon - It was gifted by the Emperor of Japan. Dimensions: Frame: 39 inches high and 26 inches wide Site: 30 inches high and 18 inches wide An attractive composition that reminds us of Japanese early Taisho artisans. Who painted creatively and in simpler forms. Unique. About the "Gyan" mudra: Among the most familiar mudra in mainstream society, the intention of Gyan mudra is to improve your concentration and sharpen your memory. This is a great mudra to use when seeking to gain insightful knowledge. Practitioners try holding this mudra while meditating for insight into ones life or a specific issue. It is performed by touching your index fingertip to the tip of your thumb, while holding your other three fingers straight. Lifetime guarantee of authenticity. All our Asian works of art are accompanied by our lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
