Signed Japanese Blue and White Kutani Porcelain Statue Figure of Sau, the Immortal With His Deer
Rich blues and white decorate the ornately patterned long sleeved robe, with unusual un-glazed face and hands. This gives a three dimensional effect to the statue. The piece is stamped on the underside - Kutani. This particular piece came from an estate of a long time collector of all objects Asian. A beautiful piece of handcrafted workmanship.
Dimensions: W8", D5.5", H10.5". Mid 20th. Century.
The Asian god of longevity, known as Sau, is a symbol of the easy life, smooth living, and victory over strife. Very appropriate these days!
