Subject:Wood panel
Posted By: Charlie Sun, Jun 19, 2022 IP:

I’d appreciate any information about this Buddha carved panel. To me it looks like a kind of Art Nouveau style. It's signed on the back but I don't recognise the symbols.

The carving depicts a historical (Heian period)
Japanese beauty. Small cut long eyes, button nose,
round face were the ideal attributes of female beauty in the Heain period.
Marking on the back side reads,
日光 - Nikkō
Early 20th century wood carving souvenir from Nikkō.

With regards,

Great. Thanks a lot. So it's not Buddha after all.
Kind regards,
