OSHIE OF KONGARA-DOJI (Dealer: Sezuan antiques & art) – Meiji period (1868-1912), Japan. approx. H 40cm (15.74in).

‘Oshie’ is an almost two-dimensional textile figure filled with cotton, and this would be the motif of ‘Kongara-doji’ (Kimkara in Sanskrit, meaning servant or slave) as the one of two little boy chief attendants of ‘Fudou Myoo’ (Acala). Moreover, it would be the figure of ‘Kongara-doji’ played by Onoe Kikugoro V as a Japanese Kabuki actor, one of the three most famous and celebrated of the Meiji period. Aged deterioration as is as seen.
