MINSHUBUTSU, BOSATSU

 

 

MINSHUBUTSU, BOSATSU (Dealer: Sezuan antiques & art) – Wooden ‘Bosatsu’ (Bodhisattva) image carved by non-professional sculptor like ordinary people such as local carpenter or etc. for the people’s request, called ‘Minshubutsu’ (lit. “Folk Buddha”). 19th century, Japan. Personally, such unstereotyped make and style would embody more the simple belief of the people than the Buddhist image by the professional do. Some lacks of parts at the top of head, the right hand, and the tip of left finger as seen. approx. H 35cm (13.77in)
