Jizo Statue


A jizo (地蔵菩薩) statue photographed at the cemetery of Jikoji temple (慈光寺) of the Jodo school of Buddhism (浄土宗) in Utsunomiya city. It was heartbreaking to see that many statues, especially the old ones, were either cracked or crushed there and they still remained as they are up until now...

The statue in this photo is taller than me and obviously one of several that survived the March 11th earthquake!

南無阿弥陀仏...

This is a Outdoor Wednesday #159 and Sky Watch Friday entry.

  2. 見る角度によって印象が全く変わりますね。空に大きく広がる木々と対照的に地蔵さまの着物の袖と眉のラインが印象的です。寒い日々が続きますね。にゃんこと一緒に温かくお過ごし下さいませ。~~旦_(^‥^=)~

  14. I like this unique perspective. The tree branches and sky look as if they are swirling above the statue.
