Fantastic Japanese stone sculpture of meditating “Jizo” or Bodhisattva. He is not your typical provincial “Jizo”. If you look closely, you can see that he was poly-chromed, with remains of designs remaining. He is holding a lotus in his lap. The carving is quite marvelous. He came out of a US estate, and looks to have been in America for a long time, probably since the 1950’s. My guess is that he is from the Edo era based on style and overall feel, although I am not an expert in this type of piece. I doubt he is newer- may be older. He looks to me like Casper the friendly ghost in deep meditation. He has a wonderful gentle face in deep concentration. Excellent condition. Sits 8 inches tall.
