contours imbue this Qing period Bodhidharma riding waves with a powerful spiritual
presence extended into the ethereal dimension. Expertly carved from a beautiful
piece of camphor wood, with convex cheek bones accentuate his large bulging eyes,
curving lips reveals a faint whiff of his stern character, while the snail curved
hair and eyebrows indicate his Indian origins. The sublime expression of the Zen
Master is both commanding and contemplative. Extensively lacquered throughout
the statue with small raised dab motifs; it does show a few worn edges, a couple
of tiny lacquer lost due to its age. It is overall in good condition, and perfectly
designed for daily contemplation.
