"Yukiguni | Snow Country"


Dimensions: 3-1/4" h

Buddhists in the North of Japan believe that Winter snow is a channel of energy, and is thought to be a ‘Divine Voice’ speaking to us through visual imagery. The Japanese people feel that they can truly experience the essence of snow with the “five” senses. This small figure is simple in character wearing a ‘Mino”, (snow coat), while the natural qualities of the wood adds pattern, depth and richness to the unornamented body.

Vintage Condition: “As is” with some scattered light wear or stain that does not affect the design, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear or structural damage are noted.
