This finely carved Japanese vintage wooden statue of a Hsien is beautifully hand-carved and stained on natural wood statue of an old man, or a Hsien in Japanese. Standing very tall, he appears to be holding up a bucket and trying to sell or trade with someone for the fish he just caught. He has a lot of personality and expression. This is a quality carved vintage wood piece with intricate detail. The lines all showing in his hair and in his short kimono blowing in the breeze. He is a handsome man, at that. It is marked on the bottom by the carver/ artist with an X. The stain is a wonderful color and the natural wood color can be seen on the pictures of the bottom. It is between 40-50 years old per the seller. There is an unknown artist mark on the bottom. It is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks or chips.
