Antique Large Zushi Wooden Japanese Buddha Buddhist Altar Shrine Edo Period :
This Buddha is in fantastic condition for its age. It stands 18 1/2 inches tall. The gilded surfaces are caked with soot which could be cleaned but I prefer it as shown. There is some paint loss on the right wrist, the right knee and several chips on the base. There are six panels on the lower base that are missing and the very tip of the back plate is gone, also there is a repair where the back plate fits into the base. The back plate is removeable and does fit snuggly into the base. Please see all photos. This piece is between250 and 400 years old. It has two stones inset into the head one is a clear crystal and the other is a purple stone (amethyst or Tourmaline?). Writing can be seen on the underside and a signature (I think it's a signature) can be seen inside the hollow base.
