ENMA AND JAKI

 

 

ENMA AND JAKI (Dealer: tayutafu) – Quite a powerful scene of Japanese Buddhist wood carving of probably ‘Enma’ The King of Hell (‘Yama’ in Sanskrit) and ‘Jaki’ Devil/Ogre, as whether Enma is trying to stick a nail into Jaki or to pull Jaki’s tong out… Edo period, 19th century. In fine antique condition, though some cracks and a lack of part at head as seen. approx. H 37cm (14.56in), W 15cm (5.90in), D 21cm (8.26in)
