Koki carries a sake bottle.


This is one of a trio of figures identified as Enno Gyoja and his two attendants, Zenki and Koki. The set follows the iconography of Shugendo, the traditional mountain ascetic practice in Japan. Enno Gyoja is depicted as a hermit-monk, seated on a rock attached to a modern base. He holds a staff in his right hand and a sutra in the left. The two attendants take the form of half-human, half-demonic figures and are regarded as a married couple.
