Flowing 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.
