Dramatic and formidable pair of Japanese bronze Nio Buddhist temple guardians, mid-20th century. Traditionally placed on either side of a temple door. One statue, Agyo, has an open mouth to represent the first sound in the Sanskrit language "a.  The other, Ungyo, has a closed mouth to represent the last, "um".  Together, they symbolize the beginning and end of all things. This pair reflects traditional crafting and form with a touch of Deco in their more modern bases.  Fantastic!  Dimensions: 26" high, 13" wide, 6 deep.
