Antique Japanese Lacquered Wood Statue
Blind Monk
In Search of The Way

Origin: Edo Japan, Circa: 19th Century or earlier
H 8 in.(20cm), W 4 in.(10cm), D 3 in.(7.5cm)
Condition: lacquere loss, minor imperfection

This spirited carving of a blind monk is both bold and lively. The unique carving is precisely conceived with force in the solid posture of the pilgrim. With a circular shaped straw hat in front like a shield, holding a walking stick, two foot slightly apart in a firm stand, his slightly uplifted chin conveys strength and dignity, while his large flowing sleeves suggesting movements in the wind. The carving has succeeded in representing the Zen parable of a man on the spiritual path, with an image that can hardly be improved upon. Which made this powerfully executed wood carving perfect for Zen meditation purpose. Despite such fine artistry, the Blind Monk is unsigned. Judging from the style and condition of this rare carving, we can safely attribute the statue to mid 19th century.

Estimated Value: $600-700
