The story of Zenzai Doji as a youth in searches for the teachings of the Buddha was first described in the Kegon Kyo Sutra in the 3rd century. On his fifty-three pilgrimages he encountered fifty-five saints and sages, then ultimately attained spiritual enlightenment and became a bodhisattva. Zenzai Doji is often depicted as the Red Boy (Sudhana), an acolyte of Kannon Bosatsu (Guanyin Bodhisattva).

This charming depiction of Zenzai Doji in scholar garments seated by a rock, whose eyes gazed downward with a sutra scroll (replaced) in hands, is a distinctive composition and an individualistic portrait of the youthful Zenzai, realistically represented with fleshiness and movements. The age of the statue is attributed to 19th century or earlier. In its present state the bronze shows a few small patches of hardened corrosion, particularly around the back and indented areas, where a partial surface of burgundy red lacquere has faded into gray. It’s also possible that a small koro was once above the rock to his right. Otherwise this impressive statue is remaining in fair to good condition.
