Size: 23 1/2 cm/ 9 1/4 inches. Material: He is carved from Bentiwas, a sustainably harvested wood. We have left him unsanded to retain the feeling of the carver working on him.
This Jizo hold his hands palm to palm at heart center. "Gassho" a symbol of unity, appreciation, reverence, humility and prayer.
He was inspired by a stone Jizo in the halls of Great Vow Zen Monastery in Oregon, where Jan Chozen Bays and her husband Hogen Bays offer superb teachings. Please see all of her books to have the teachings with you if you can not ago there, and particularly her book 'Jizo Bodhisattva". They also offer this statue on their on line shop Zen Works.
