Good condition, see description

A beautiful, rare, Japanese, guaranteed antique, wood and gold gilt Bodhisattva 'Kishibojin' and Altar, from the 19th century ( Altar Stand is from the 1960/70s)

Part of a family shrine imported directly from Japan.

In the Japanese tradition, Kishimojin is an aspect of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, and she bears the epithets "Bringer of Happiness" (歓喜母) and "Giver of Children and Easy Delivery" (子安鬼子母神).

She is also a cultural development of a response to the power of Christianity in Japan, with the obvious similarity to the iconography of Mary holding the Infant Jesus. This happened both in China and Japan with the iconography of Kannon/Kwan Yin and other female dieties of the Buddhist and Taoist cannon being changed. As such examples of these including Kishimojin are very collectable.

The gilded statue stands on a tiered, lotus throne, her hands holding a figure of a child. She still has remnants of hand painted robe details.

The Altar is also hand made in wood with laquer and gold gilt.

A wonderful set of pieces for the collector, altar, gift, or an impressive interior design statement.

    Première fois que mon avis est négatif. La statue présentée comme 28x11x10 cm fait 13 cm de haut avec un socle de 15 ! un scandale !

    Response by seller
    Dear Buyer. Customer satisfaction is my upmost concern. I'm sorry you feel this. As I've stated the listing details clearly stated the size of the fragment both mounted and unmounted. The size was also made very clear in the photo of the statue next to my hand. As you know through our lengthy commications, I've offered to refund the purchase if the statue is returned, which you have not replied to. Catawiki Customer Services have been informed about this issue to help you. Regards Bodhisattva Emporium
