Good condition, see description.

This is a beautiful, rare, genuine Japanese antique. From the late 18th Century (1700s), early Edo period, this is a laquered wood and gold gilt, Kokuzou Bosatsu Kannon Bodhisattva. She is housed in a Zushi Box/Butsu-dō, also in laquered and gold gilt wood, with copper fittings.

This is displayed on a seperate, decorative antique/vintage Altar, this is also hand made in wood, with laquer and gold gilt top section. It also has decorative copper fittings.This dates from the 20th century.

In her Zushi she sits on a multi tiered, lotus throne. Behind her an elaborate floral, wave like, manora, embossed with her Halo or Gotsu, symbolising her radiant aura, is gilded also with gold leaf. She wears a high golden crown, also delightfully gilded.

In her hands she holds a 'Hoju' 宝珠 or hōju-no-tama 宝珠の玉. This sacred Buddhist jewel signifies the bestowal of blessings on all who suffer. It's said it grants wishes, pacifies desires, and brings clear understanding of the Dharma (Buddhist law). This equates to “wealth” in  Buddhist philosophy. She is believed to be a Bodhisattva that will bestow wisdom.

Part of an old family shrine, from a old rural house clearance sell, imported directly from Japan by me.

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

    Leider ist die Statue preiswerte Importware aus Japan und nicht das Geld wert, dass ich bezahlt habe.
    Die Ware war gut verpackt und ist unbeschädigt angekommen
