Small wooden carved and painted Kichijoten figure.
Kichijoten or Kisshoten is the Japanese equivalent of the Hindu Laksmi, Goddess of fortune, luck, beauty and merit. We're not sure exactly how old this one is but it probably dates from mid-late 19th century. The paint is worn and faded but it is generally in good condition. Please call or email if you'd like more photos. It is 17cm tall and she has a lovely serene character.
