This modern wood statue was discovered in Japan, but carved in China. Tathagata (Buddha) statues are generally depicted with elongated ears (all-hearing), a bump atop the head (all-knowing), and often a boss in the forehead (all-seeing).
- Wood = Unknown, but quite heavy and sturdy; possibly boxwood
- Inches = H 7.48 x W 4.84 x D 3.15
- Centimeters = H 19 x W 12.3 x D 8.0

- Carved for the Chinese market; unlike statues carved for the Japanese market, statues in China are more exaggerated -- facial features, hands, and legs are less realistic or proportional; nonetheless, a lovely statue.
