Stone depiction of a standing Jizo Bosatsu, the hands forming the gassho adoration mudra, early-Edo Period ca. 1650, possibly earlier. Old loss.

Height: 28.2 cm
Width: 18.5 cm
Depth: 11.0 cm.

Sculpted from a heavy, hard igneous stone, an old Jizo stone for those who see in decline less a sliding away from integrity than a progression toward essence.
