This exquisite white resin Statue of Jizo is handcrafted in Oregon, USA by Mission Studios, and is part of their "Kuanyin and Friends" Collection. The height of this statue is approximately 2.75 inches.
Jizō is a Bodhisattva, one who achieves enlightenment but postpones Buddhahood until all can be saved. Jizō embodies supreme spiritual optimism, compassion, and universal salvation, all hallmarks of Mahayana Buddhism.
Jizō is the only Bodhisattva portrayed as a monk, shaven head, no adornments, no royal attire, nearly always dressed in the simple robe of a monk. A halo often surrounds his head. Jizō’s customary symbols are the shakujō (six-ring staff) and the hōjunotama (wish-granting jewel). When Jizō shakes the staff, it awakens us from our delusions, to help us break free of the six states of rebirth and achieve enlightenment. The jewel signifies Jizō’s bestowal of blessings on all who suffer, for the jewel grants wishes, pacifies desires, and brings clear understanding of the Dharma (Buddhist law).
In this particular statue, Jizo is surrounded by children and animals.
