Rare bronze of a Tengu, a dragon and an impressive wave

Exceptional bronze reminiscent of the Great Wave off Kanagawa created by Katsushika Hokusai. The ingenuity of this composition is quite unique. It depicts a huge wave about to crash down on frail crabs and octopus, while the ridge foam on top wraps around a finely chiseled, bronze sphere with a tenant dragon. the magic pearl, Tama, and a raven-billed tengu karasu about to take off from its summit. The waves form a whole through which we observe the sphere which seems to float. The whole creates a “magical” tension in this work. This bronze can also be used as an incense burner. Height: 51cm. Weight: 6.8kgs
