Early 1920`s Yamabushi Shinto ascetic`s pigrim coat with the Heart Sutra written on it. Made of asa or fiber, the Pilgrim would go around Shikoku to the 88 shrines there reciting the heart sutra and getting a temple stamp from each temple on the coat. Sanscrit letters on the sleave. Excellent condition. Has a silk brocade fastener to close. About 96cm tall by 90cm wide. Ask for shipping quote.
