MINSHUBUTSU (Dealer: hotoke) – Unique Shinto/Buddhist wood carving seated image (as originally a Thousand-armed Kannon) carved by an unknown non-professional sculptor, so-called ‘Minshubutsu’ (lit. “Folk Buddha”), 19th century or earlier, Japan. Refined “amateur” expression and sense of existence by scarce information and pure imagination, and with such aesthetic aged deterioration (also worm‐eaten condition with some wood dust) as is.
