NI-OH GATE GUARDIAN

NI-OH GATE GUARDIAN

This is a traditional Japanese design representing a protector of the Buddhist faith. These figures are guardians that are found on either side of temple gateways - one is called "N-gyo" (= mouth shut), the other, carved with the mouth open, is called "A - gyo".

Why not wear one of these little champions as a ring??

Fumio has used Red Deer antler for this carving and, typical of his work, he has left parts of the antler natural and part is finely worked. The result is a beautifully artistic and wonderfully crafted ring!

A spectacular piece of wearable art for all lovers of traditional Japanese art and carving!

This is a magnificent little piece, hand crafted from the tine of a Red Deer antler - gorgeous, resilient and tough!

Take a close look at the photos to appreciate the detail of this piece.
