Ebony Wood Zhong Kui Ghost Eater

Chinese Ebony Wood Buddha
Zhong Kui
Ghost Eater, Judge of Hell

Origin: China. Circa: early 20th Century

H 17.5 in.(44cm), W 6.5 in.(17cm), D 5.5 in.(14cm)

Condition: excellent!

In Chinese mythology Zhong Kui (or Shoki as he is known in Japan) is both the vanquisher of evil spirits and the guardian of the Underworld. Because of his reputation as a formidable protector his image is painted on household gates and places where precious goods are stored.

There is a natural momentum to this Chinese ebony statue. Zhong Kui is captured in action, the moment before he forcefully commands and vanquishes demons that are his path. His belly is full and forceful. His beard and face is rendered in deep detail. Zhong Kui is both man and a god and he brims with vitality and strength. His headdress flies in action. Below him is a demon carrying a drinking bowl. This masterful, dynamic statue is in excellent condition. (SD)
