FUKUKENSAKU KANNON / Standard
Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Fukukensaku Kannon (Amoghapasa)
Amoghapasa is a Kannon (a Buddhist goddess of mercy) who uses a kensaku (a lasso or a stiff rope so that the noose stays open when it is thrown) and rescues sentient beings suffering and brings the benefit of being healthy and being loved by everyone.
The model image is a national treasure enshrined in Nara Prefecture. Visitors will be overwhelmed with its scale with a size exceeding 3.6 m and jeweled crown decorated with over twenty thousand jewels coupled with the delicate halo of openwork carving. The bead is between the hands pressed together in prayer in front of the chest. This is because the then Emperor at the time of the completion of the image lost a prince (his child) and said, “It seems as if I lost a bead in my hands.”

不空羂索観音は、手にした羂索(けんさく/投げ縄のこと)で迷い苦しむ衆生を救う観音で、健康で皆から愛されるというご利益があります。
モデル像は奈良県にある国宝で、3.6mを超える大きさと、2万数千もの宝玉で彩られた宝冠や透かし彫りの繊細な光背が相まって、見るものを圧倒するスケール感を持っています。胸の前で合掌する手の中に珠を入れていますが、これは造像当時の天皇が皇子(実子)を亡くし、「掌中の珠がなくなったようだ」と言ったことにちなんでいます。
