Lot 19 | A CARVED WOOD FIGURE OF GUARDIAN KING
A CARVED WOOD FIGURE OF GUARDIAN KING

HEIAN PERIOD (11TH CENTURY)

Carved from cypress wood in single-block technique (ichiboku-zukuri) as the Guardian King shown in Chinese armor standing in a frontal pose on top of a defeated demon. The right arm is bent and rests forcefully on the right hip; the left arm is raised to hold a trident, now missing. His forceful expression matches the defiant energy of his pose, heightened by the drapery extending off the wrist and down from the shoulder.

49 ¼ in. (125 cm.) high
