  • Okina
  • w140mm x d90mm x h220mm


“Okina”, I was completed. Surface of the original “Okina” is, though away the upper jaw and lower jaw, but has been tied by (cut chin) string, this surface is carved with a single solid. “Okina” was used in the ritual of sacred prayer, the face of the old man wrinkles carved. Since eye is very laughing felt here feeling will also be gentle and fun.


Once carved surface to clean, I put the “wrinkles” in the face. Change at all expression, it became calm feeling. Although when was nervous to put the sword, Voila still was impressed.
