Japanese Jizo Statues in The David Alan Gallery
We have been collecting Antique Jizo Statues from the Edo Period of Japan for years. Their aesthetic beauty and symbolism is something we hold dear at David Alan. Along with these rare antique finds, we are happy to announce we have found contemporary Jizo Statues made from both wood and limestone. They are quite amazing!
Jizō is a bodhisattva, who has postponed Nirvana until all can be saved. Jizō embodies supreme spiritual optimism, compassion, and universal salvation. He is the guardian of children, expectant mothers, women and travelers.
