Japanese Buddhist Painting Fudo Myo-o, 19th century

Fudo Myo-o appears from a cloud. Clouds are also depicted as an embodiment of the energy or vital force of the cosmos. Fudō Myō-ō is the central deity in all Myō-ō deities, who are Five Wisdom kings of Womb Realm. Fudo literary means immovable and is the destroyer of delusion and a principal protector of Buddhism. His immovability refers to that aspect of mind (Buddha-Nature or True self), which is forever unmoved - perfectly stable and unchanging. Despite his furious appearance, Fudō converts anger into salvation by showing the true essence of the teachings of the Buddha, leading into perfect mental discipline. Painted on silk and signed. There are some stains and marks and light damage (on the mounting itself) associated with its great age.

Kanō Isen (Naganobu) (1775-1828) was the eighth generation head of the Kobikichō branch of the Kanō school in Edo (present day Tokyo). He had a considerable talent as an artist, and was retained by the shōgun. He executed quality paintings, which were presented to Edo castle as wall paintings and folding screens for Korean peninsula. He mastered painting techniques of Yamaot-e, a painting with traditional Japanese theme, and devoted himself to support the golden age of Kano art school.
