FUDO MYO-O /Standard
Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Standing Statue of Fudo Myoo
“Fudo” means unshakeable strong mind. In the right hand, Fudo Myo’o holds a sword of wisdom which cuts through worldly desires. In the left hand, he holds a rope of salvation and commandment.
The angry look on the face expresses his strong determination to save sentient beings and the upright posture represents when he stood up for the lost sentient beings. Fudo Myo’o is strongly worshipped, especially in Japan and many sculptures and paintings were made.
This statue’s model was made by Unkei in 1189 and was designated as an important cultural property of Japan. Unkei is one of the most famous sculptor of Buddha statues. The firm body shape and the lively face expression particularly resembles Unkei’s characteristic.

「不動」は揺るぎのない強い心を意味し、右手に煩悩を切る智慧の剣、左手に救いと戒めの縄を持っています。
厳しい憤怒の相はすべての衆生を救おうとする強い決意の表れで、仁王立ちは迷える衆生のために立ち上がった姿です。特に日本で篤く信仰され、数多くの彫刻や絵画が残されています。
この仏像のモデルは1189年に、日本で最も有名な仏師の一人、運慶が制作したもので、日本の重要文化財に指定されています。ハリのあるポーズやいきいきとした表情に、特に運慶の特徴がよく表れています。
