A Japanese sculpture depicting one of the sixteen Rakan, literally means the ‘Venerable’ and represents the ideal of the most ancient Buddhism since it indicates the saint who, having reached perfection in life thanks to total knowledge, has destroyed all ties with existence, he isn’t destined to be reborn after death and will enter Nirvana.
The sculpture is carved from a single block, the robe is enriched with bas-relief medallions in the shape of the Ryu dragon with horn and mother-of-pearl eyes. He holds the stupa with the left hand and the pearl necklace with the right hand symbols of Zen Buddhism, standing on the rock next to the karashishi.
