This Japanese polychrome wood statue is dated to the mid c.18th CE. The statue was assembled from multiple pieces of wood which were joined with wooden dowels. The wood structure was then covered with a white gesso and the object was painted. Cracks have opened in the statue and there has been at least one previous (undocumented) restoration attempt.
