      An erratic mid 20th century Daruma painting signed Gozan in the
      original signed wooden box; the almost frenzied aspect of the
      brushwork balanced with the morose look on the legendary figures
      face. Of course, the Daruma is the founder of Zen Buddhism, and is
      attributed by the Chinese as the originator of Shao-Lin Kung-Fu. We
      have been unable to find any information on Gozan; however the name
      (five mountains) is certainly that of a priest (as originally in
      Japan the five main sects of Buddhism were represented by five
      mountain temples). The watercolor and ink on paper image, taken from
      an unusual angle and reminiscent of the works of the artist Tessai,
      is set in a very clean border of dark brown cloth, extended in beige.
      There is some age staining present on the image, but due to the
      peculiar style of the painting, actually blends in to the background.
      The scroll measures 19-1/4 by 62 inches (48 x 155 cm).
