Wooden Standing Statue of Jizo Bosatsu

This statue is enshrined on the left (as you face it) platform of the Kannon-do Hall of Gotoku-ji Temple. The height is 76.6 cm, a little smaller than the Standing Statue of Sho Kannon Bosatsu. The structure is almost the same as Sho Kannon Bosatsu. They simply fixed both hands and tips of the feet separately later, and this is carved from a single piece of wood from the top of its head to the body.
The eyes and mouth are shallowly engraved and the statue has a quiet expression, similar to the Standing Statue of Sho Kannon Bosatsu. The only difference is that all the pleats are omitted from the robe, presenting local expression. Given the above, this statue was probably built in the Muromachi period but slightly later than the Standing Statue of Sho Kannon Bosatsu.
