Gilded in gold on rich black dry lacquered over a joined blocks wood core, detailed with crystal inlaid for the urna and glass-eyes inlaid, this rare Fugen Bosatsu (Sanskrit: Samantabhadra) is both noble and austere. An excellent example of the Kamakura sculpture and innovative hollow core wood carving technique developed by Jocho of Heian in the 11th century. In style the graceful form of this Fugen Bosatsu is alluded to the geometrical equilibrium in traditional Chinese design. The Buddha has a delicate life-like feature, eyes down cast in serene meditation, large extended eyebrows and hair arranged in protruding head-dress. He is seated in dhyanasana with hands in blessing gesture; his join hands also served as a reminder of the coexistence of the two inseparable principles of the Womb and Diamond, and the reciprocal static and dynamic actions of spiritual and material planes. Judging from the tarnished gold and gilt loss, and a couple of hairlines splits between the joined sections due to time related wood shrinkage, the Fugen statue is tentatively attributed to the early or mid Edo eras.
