'Busshu' (Buddha's hand) of the wood carving statue of 'Senju Sengen Kannon' (Thousand-armed and thousand-eyed kannon), Edo period (1603-1868), Japan, approx. L 7cm (2.75in). Such small size busshu with carving eye is quite a rare and also its carving is so delicate as the work of skilful 'busshi' (master sculptor of Buddhist images). Lack of forefinger as is.

This carved from hard wood in good condition with minor checks in the wood. H: 19.5cm/7.8in.

All the materials are handmade from the string binding the pages together to the charcoal ink. In this day of ideas being conveyed on a keyboard, back then one really had to think before th...
