KUYA SHONIN (Kuya) / Tana Cocoro
Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Kamakura period (13th century)
Kuya Shonin was an early promoter of the nianfo (Buddhist chants) among the common people during the Heian period.
The Amit?bha figures streaming from his mouth represent the six syllables of the nianfo: na-mu-a-mi-da-butsu.
This statue is popular for its unique expression that is reminiscent of a comic character.

空也上人は、平安時代に庶民に念仏を広めた先駆者です。
口元から出ている阿弥陀仏は、念仏の南無阿弥陀仏を表しています。
まるでコミックの吹出しのような造型がユニークで、人気の仏像です。
