Ceramic Jizo Figure

$30.00

Jizo is seen by Zen Buddhists as a guardian of women, children, and travelers, and the embodiment of courage, optimism, and benevolence. Gassho is the Japanese word for the hand gesture Jizo is making, used to express greeting, request, thankfulness, deep respect, or prayer. Matthew Leavitt designed these statues during his period of study at Great Vow Zen Monastery in Clatskanie, Oregon. This design is intended to evoke a feeling of calm and reverence and they’re pleasant to hold in your hand.
