ELEVEN-FACED KANNONRYUZO / Standard
Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Eleven-faced Kannon to save all difficulties
Eleven-faced Kannon Bodhisattva who turns his face in all directions to deal with various difficulties and sufferings of sentient beings. Since the Heian period, it has become widely worshiped in Japan in connection with folk beliefs. Although the examples are left in various places, there are only 7 national treasure designated statues including model statues. His right hand holds a varadamudra that listens to the various wishes of sentient beings, and his left hand holds a water bottle containing sweet dew water that eliminates anxiety.
The young and fresh
model of the beautiful Buddha in the Heian period is the national treasure "Wooden Eleven-faced Kannon Statue", which is thought to have been made in the early Heian period. The eyes, nose, and mouth of the precious face are all small-sized, and while they look like a pretty girl with their plump cheeks, they have a heavy body with tight shoulders, and a esoteric statue combined with a colorful halo. It creates a unique power and a mysterious atmosphere. Since modern times, it has been loved by many cultural figures and still fascinates us with its unchanging beauty.

ふくよかで愛らしい、
絵画のような美仏

あらゆる困難を救う十一面観音
衆生の様ざまな困難や苦しみに対応するため、すべての方向に顔を向ける十一面観音菩薩。日本では平安時代以降、民間信仰と結び付いて広く信仰されるようになりました。
その作例は各地に遺されているものの、国宝指定像はモデル像を含めわずか7体。右手は衆生のさまざまな願いを聞き入れる与願印を結び、左手には煩悩を消す甘露の水が入った水瓶を掲げています。

若くみずみずしい平安時代の美仏
モデルは平安前期の作とみられる国宝「木造 十一面観音立像」。
尊顔の目、鼻、口はいずれも小ぶりに造型され、ふっくらした頬と相まって可憐な少女のようでありながら、しっかり肩の張った重量感ある体躯を持ち合わせ、極彩色の板光背と相まって密教像ならではの迫力と、どこか不思議な雰囲気を醸し出します。
近代以降、多くの文化人から愛され、今なお変わらぬ美しさで私たちを魅了します。
