Subject:Bronze kabuki actor signature

Second post here. Yay!

This is a big bronze Japanese statue of a man I believe to be a kabuki actor. He's very heavy.

Signature reads,
芳山 - Hōzan
On English language sites is misread as Yoshiyama.

Dōgu Hōzan 道具芳山
Three generations of traditional craftsmen since 1882 in Takaoka. Probably 2nd gen. born in 1918.

With regards,
