Condition: minor imperfection
A miniature antique Child Bestowing Koyasu Kannon enshrined in a carved
wood lacquer zushi, gilded gold interior walls, exterior decorated with gilded
bronze floral ascend; the meticulously carved and painted Bosatsu is dressed in
a multifold long robe, with her left foot lightly forward, she stands serenely
above a lotus pedestal, with a flaming halo glowing behind her, and in her front
a tiny baby wrapped to a cloth carrier, of which she held with her left hand.
The small zushi box is well preserved, the hinges and locking mechanism are tight
and in very good working condition. It's a delicate traveling companion nonetheless.
