TENTOUKI / Tana Cocoro / Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Kamakura period (1215)
This pair of Oni (ogre), normally evil demons, paid a penance and took refuge in the Buddha to be given the role of holding a pair of lanterns.
Similar to Kongo Rrikishi (Deva King) statues, the pair consists of the “a”and “un” forms.
These humorous statues are masterpieces of realistic and dynamic compositions.

天燈鬼(てんとうき)
普通は悪い存在の鬼ですが、改心して仏教に帰依し、燈篭を捧げ持つ役割を与えられました。
金剛力士と同じく「阿吽」で二体一対となっています。
ユーモラスな姿ですが、写実的でダイナミックな造型がなされた傑作です。
