Description   

Sho Kannon is one of the most popular deities in the Japanese Buddhist pantheon, nearly paralleling that of Amida of the Pure Land teaching. As an agent of the Buddha Amida, he watches over all of humankind and extends his limitless compassion to all sufferers. In his extended right hand, Sho Kannon once held a lotus. This figure is made from several blocks of wood, prepared individually, hollowed out, and then assembled to form a full sculpture. The surface of the assembled form was then smoothed and finished with black lacquer.
