Originated in Indian mythology as Kubera, the Guardian of the North, Bishamonten is widely worshiped as the God of War, and the God of Wealth. Since the eighth century he is commonly celebrated as an independent deity, with numerous temples of his own throughout Japan. Dressed in an elaborate full suit of armour over a twirling robe, with two large wind-blown sleeves like wings to his back, where mounted a thin copper halo, which accentuates Bishamonten’s serene and dignified facial expression. He is holding a (replacement) weapon in his right hand, and his left originally held a stupa. The God of War is wearing a pair of high boots, standing legs firmly apart and trampling above a chubby demon on a protruding rock. This artfully sculpted statue is an ultra fine specimen clearly came from the hands of an able carver from the Edo eras.
