BURNT JIZO AND UNREADABLE LETTER (Dealer: KIKA) – Burnt and survived wood carving Jizo statue from Satake-ji temple in Ibaraki prefecture, Japan, that was left alone without care for many years until Showa 24 (1949) because of ‘Haibutsu kishaku’ (Anti-Buddhist movement at the beginning of the Meiji period), originally dated back to the Edo period, 18th century or earlier.
The one of ‘Sentaibutsu’ (lit. ‘Thousand Buddhas’) of a large number of Buddhist images dedicated to the wall of temple, in untouched original condition as is, attached with an external bag of ‘Kokonoe-mamori’ (Mandala scroll), a ‘Gofu’ (Talisman), a note written with unreadable words in India ink, and the two glass beads for ‘Busshari’ (Stupa for “Buddha’s ashes”).
*I attach an acrylic base for statue, but with a little loose joint.
Jizo: approx. H 17cm (6.69in)
