Jizo bodhisattva, anonymous, c. 1200 - c. 1250

wood (plant material), h 47cm More details

Jizo is a saviour of souls. He is a bodhisattva, an enlightened being who has postponed his own salvation to assist humankind. Although the figure’s gentle face is stylised, there is a degree of realism in the body’s attitude with some tension in the shoulder of the raised left arm. This lifelike element was introduced into Japanese sculpture around 1200.

This work belongs to Jizo bodhisattva (AK-MAK-116)
