GOD!!!!! I'm just not sure which Japanese god he is but I know he's HEAVEN. Caved of wood the artist has made full use of burl, twigs and sticks to create this work of Art. Our Deity strides with one foot raised off the wooden base. I believe, at one point, he held a staff...now gone...since his right hand is in a fist and must have held something. Please look at the photos closely-this Heavenly creature has traveled a long road but is in great shape. One important thing to notice is the crack at the back of his head...a natural reaction of the wood's shrinkage. Together, you'll walk an enlightened path.
