Powerful modeling that is said to be Unkei's work
The Buddhist statue that became the model for this product is the statue of Aizen Myo, the principal image of Kongo Sanmai-in Temple, which is specially designed for Koyasan.
It is also said that Minamoto no Yoritomo, the first shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate, commissioned the genius Buddhist master Unkei to produce it. It is a statue that shows the strong connection between the temple at that time and the Kamakura Shogunate.
Although it has a fierce expression and a vermilion-dyed body, it was deeply worshiped as a Buddha that connects all ties. The expression that makes you feel the harsh but mercifulness and the details such as the detailed decoration of the pedestal are carefully modeled. With its overwhelming presence, it was condensed into Tana COCORO size and sold in a limited edition of 200.
