Bronze figure of bodhisattva Kannon standing on a large carp (koi), holding a scroll (holy scripture) in her hand. With unclear marked at the back of the figure. Meiji – Taisho Period.
Kannon is an active emanation of Amida Buddha, and thus she occupies a major place in the liturgy of Japan’s Pure Land (Jōdo 浄土) sects. Kannon is the most important of Amida’s two main attendants. A koi fish stands for courage and also associated with perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose. So light signs of age - with nice orignal patina
