Product Description

This is an antique Japanese wooden Jizo Bosatsu dated 1850 written on the bottom. Jizo Bosatsu is a depicted as a monk and carries Nyoi Hoju, wishful orb and tin rod.These are used to force open the gates of hell and a wish-fulfilling jewel  to light up the darkness

Although Jizō is invoked for many roles—as protector of travelers, of children, and of women in childbirth—he was especially venerated for his intervention on behalf of those suffering in hell, the lowest of the Six Realms of Existence. He is portrayed as a monk with an open, compassionate expression ready to hear the call of the suffering. In his hand is a traveler's staff, its six rings a symbol of the extent of his mercy through all realms of being, and its clinking sound a signal of his foot's fall lest he harm even the smallest creature.

There is a small repair on the wrist.

It measures that W 30, D 21.5, H 43.5 cm (W 11.81, D 8.46, H 17.12 inches)
