Kokuzoo Bosatsu – Nara

Posted in Places by tokyobling on November 15, 2012

Here is one of my favorite Buddhist statues, the Kokuzoo Bosatsu (or the Ākāśagarbha Bodhisattva, 虚空蔵菩薩) seated next to the big buddha in Nara. I love how grand and ostentatious these statues are, especially for such a humble and peaceful religion.
