A stunning antique Japanese Bronze and multi-metal Okimono group depicting Emperor Jimmu.

This powerful Okimono group depicts the legendary first Emperor of Japan, Emperor Jimmu. In this sculpture, he is dressed in Generals attire. His armour is decorated with auspicious Magatama Jade strones and he wears an impressive necklace made from them.

Also depicted is Michino Omi No Mikoto, a close friend and confidant of Emperor Meiji. Michino Omi No Mikoto was also known as The Sun Lord or the Path Finder. He is depicted holding a dried Abalone as an offfering of thanks to the Shinto Gods.

The scene depicted in this Masterful Okimono group (by the Miyao studio), reflects upon a period when Emperor Jimmu strove to subdue the babarians of the East. He wanted to go to Naka-tsu-kuni but the mountains were too steep to cross. His trusted friend and attendant Michino Omi No Mikoto saw a miraculous bird in flight and they followed its path to get to their destination.

The group stands on a fine wood base with gold decoration, typical of the Miyao studio.
