Minimalistic carving and natural wood grain join together to form the face of this aged sitting figure. With eyes downturned and hands together, the figure sits as if in meditation or reflection. In soft lighting, Kishino harnesses the wood’s natural colors to give the appearance of shadows on the figure's folded robe.
