This is a culturally significant and fine Antique Old Asian Meiji Japan Japanese Buddha Scroll Painting, oil on paper, depicting a standing Buddha figure atop of a large lotus flower. The Buddha is surrounded by vibrant gold and red sun rays, and his skin is rendered in gold hued pigment. The figure has a moustache and beard which is indicative of its Meiji Era Japanese origin. But the last two characters have an uncertain meaning.
Additionally, this scroll has the Japanese character written. Approximately 60 1/2 inches long including scroll paper.
Actual painted artwork is approximately 41 x 12 inches. The scroll, when rolled up, is approximately 18 x 2 1/2 inches. Very good condition for over a century of age, with mild edge wear and material loss to the top and side edges of the scroll paper please see photos. Acquired from an old an affluent Ethnographic art collection in Los Angeles County, California.
