Identifying a figurine of a deity 2018/4/25 05:13
Hello everyone, I recently acquired this piece, the seller told me its from the 19th century, and that he got it from an old estate in Japan. I do know my little share of antiquities and mythology, from the looks of it, it seems to be a variable representation of the Fudo Myoo (japanese), or Acala (sanskrit).
But I want to know for sure who he is, as I never seen such a representation of this deity, as he is holding his foot, does not have the characteristic up and down fangs of Fudo Myoo, etc, if someone can help identifying it, I would be very grateful.
I would like to know about its possible age too, and lastly, an approximated value.
Thank you all!
Those are the pictures, he came with his shrine.
