ONE OF FOUR DEVAS – Japanese wood carving Buddhist figurine (Dealer: hotoke antiques) – High quality Buddhist sculpture of the one of ‘Shitenno’ (Four Devas), probably ‘Tamon-ten’ (also ‘Bishamonten’ / Vaisravana). 19th century. Quite a severe facial expression, but at the same time, somehow funny and funky. Also, comical and lovely proportions and posture (specially from the back view). Some damages, but unobstructed for its presence itself as seen. Aesthetically arranged to be attached with a half-pyramidal stand by the former owner.
Total – approx. H 16cm (6.29in), W 12cm (4.72in), D 9cm (3.54in)
