This rare version of Daruma is in the ‘Harusame’ style of carving in natural birch wood. This figure has distinctly different faces and expressions. It is a standing Daruma wearing the typical robe and one of several versions of this beloved figure. It has a carved insignia entitled a “Nintia”, (Patience). An interesting feature is that this doll form follows that of the robe and natural figure, to give life to the doll along with its intricately carved of his characteristic face and the symbol of Patience on the front of his robe. Suizan-san is a unique artist whose work is unusual and seldom seen, making these dolls quite rare. The piece is signed in script on the bottom along with with his red impressed stamp

Condition: Excellent meaning that the piece retains its original craft/workmanship showing a wonderful-developed patina commensurate which suggests a degree of wear that corresponds to its vintage. It is void of damage, cracks, breakage, or repairs and meets all the standards of the collectible Sosaku Kokeshi.
