Large Antique Japanese Meiji Satsuma Covered Urn Vase with Foo Dog

$7,900

About

Beautiful large Japanese Meiji period (1868-1912) Satsuma porcelain covered vase or urn. The lidded jar is richly decorated with enamel and hand-painted Lohan scenes with gilt accents and has upturned handles and a lid with a Foo dog or dragon figural finial. The urn is raised on three shaped legs with animal heads joined to the body and terminating in paw feet. An old faded artist signature to the interior edge of the lid. Measurements: 12.63 in. wide (32 cm) x 8.69 in. deep (22 cm) x 18.50 in. high (47 cm). About: Mahayana Buddhism regarded a group of Eighteen Arhats (with names and personalities) as awaiting the return of the Buddha as Maitreya, while other groupings of 6, 8, 16, 100, and 500 also appear in tradition and Buddhist art, especially in East Asia called luohan or lohan. They may be seen as the Buddhist equivalents of the Christian saint, apostles, or early disciples and leaders of the faith. (Credit: Wikipedia)
