This is a beautiful, rare, genuine Japanese antique. Over a 100 years old, from the early 20th Century or late 19th century ( corresponding to the Meiji Era 明治時代 1868-1912) it depicts 'Shinran' (親鸞, May 21, 1173- January 16, 1263) a Japanese Buddhist monk, who was born in Hino (now a part of Fushimi, Kyoto) at the turbulent close of the Heian Period and lived during the Kamakura Period. Shinran was a pupil of Hōnen and the founder of what ultimately became the Jōdo Shinshū Sect in Japan.
He was hand carved by a 'Busshi' ( a Buddhist Image maker).
Originally part of an old Japanese family shrine, from a old rural estate auction, imported directly from Japan by me.
Shinran is hand carved and colored. Delicate facial features with hand painted eye brows. His hands in Mudra holding discoloured glass or crystal prayer beads.
A wonderful statue for the collector, altar, or an impressive interior design statement.
Good. Patina, wear, small scratches, small chips, cracks, old repairs to Zushi, fading, dust. Discolouration, loss, wear and fading of gold gilt and colour, all usual for age/wear and age of manufacture. Small cracks in statue of Shinran.
Early 20th Century/late 19th century.

I originally trained as a Sculptor then Photographer in the 1980s. In the 90s I had a successful career as a young jewellery Designer In London. I produced collections for Boules, Miss Selfridge, and the Designer outlet Jess James in Soho. With an active interest in Buddhism and Taoism since my teens, I've been collecting Buddhist and Oriental Art since 2003. I source these pieces directly from Dealers in the UK, USA, Europe, and Japan. I've been personally on buying trips to the Far East. I restore lost gems to those bronzes with empty settings, and restore wooden Japanese Antiques where pieces are lost or broken. Many of pieces end up in private collections, altars, and even Buddhist Retreats and Temples. I consider both my restorations, and my collecting, as a meditation within the Karma Yoga tradition.
