FUJIN / Tana Cocoro / Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Kamakura period (13th century)
Fujin and Raijin are deifications of the natural phenomena of wind and thunder, respectively.
These deities bring prosperity to the lives of the Japanese who once were agricultural people, but also bring terrible disasters.
Despite their fearsome facial expressions, these statues bear a somewhat humorous air.

自然現象である風と雷を神として崇めたものです。
恐ろしい災いをもたらすと同時に、農耕民族だった日本人の暮らしに豊かさをもたらしてくれる存在です。
恐ろしい形相をしていますが、どこかユーモラスな雰囲気もある造型です。
