This is a vintage, minature, Japanese statue of Buddhist Guardian, Acala (Fudomyo-oh), which was made by the 1st class artisan, Shuun Makita 牧田秀雲 (1917-) about 30 years ago ( 1980s approximately) complete with its own minature Altar in gold gilt, laquer, and wood.

The Acala is made of alloyed-copper. The figure is coated with a white coating as part of the design. The signature of the artisan is carved on the back of the flame manora.

Shuun was born in Shizuoka Prefecture in 1917, and studied buddhist sculpture with Mochizuki Hideaki in Yokohama. He is best known for his images of Buddhism and Shinto figures. He notably designed the bell tower and the sculptures for a religious community in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1953. He received a prize for the preservation of traditional crafts at the occasion of his exhibition in Tokyo in 1973.

    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
