Beautifully cast in translucent matte finish fine bone china, our porcelain standing Jizo Bosatsu is depicted as a Buddhist monk with a shaved head. He holds the "jewel of wisdom" in one hand and his staff of protection and teaching in the other hand. He is a savior bodhisattva who has vowed to compassionately help sentient beings until the coming of Maitreya, the Buddha of the Future. Jizo is revered as the protector of women, ailing children and travelers; especially those traveling in the "between states" from this life to the next. His childlike image encourages parents to see him alternately as an innocent child and a gentle savior. This remarkable porcelain figurine is 11.5" high to the top of his head and 13" to the top of his staff.
