Jizō-bosatsu, known affectionately as “O-Jizō-sama,” is a Buddhist deity whom probably all Japanese know. Faith in Jizō-bosatsu developed in the Heian period (794-1185), and belief in Jizō as the deity who saves all humankind was established in the latter half of that period. Since then, Jizō has been worshipped in every region and every period, and multitudes of paintings and sculptures of that deity have been created.
This exhibition, which is centered on Buddhist paintings and sculptures from the museum collection, presents an overview of the history of faith in Jizō in Japan and its ramifications. We hope that visitors will enjoy this opportunity to learn about the splendid and diverse world of art associated with Jizō-bosatsu.
