OGRE

 

 

OGRE (Dealer: hotoke) – Old wood carving ogre mask dedicated to a shrine or temple. Tohoku region, Japan. Slightly but signed at the backside, as “Drive out evil. Invite good luck.”, “Showa 27 (1952)”, and an unidentified sculptor’s name. Quite a refined votive mask in such aesthetic natural condition as is. Irises of the eyes are made of metal. (* Personally I used blu tack to display it when shooting the photos, so please think out a way of displaying (or hanging) it by the purchaser oneself.)

approx. L 20cm (7.87in), W 10cm (3.93in), D 6.5cm (2.55in)
