You can see OJizo-sama in a lot of places around Japan.

Jizo is the most popular Buddha in Japan, we can find them frequently on the roadside as well as temple's garden.

 

After the Gautama Siddhaarhta's death, by the time Maitreya Bodhisattva will have attain enlightenment 56 billion and 70 million years later, there hasn't been no Buddha who can relieve people in this world. It's so bad situation, so Jizo decided to stay in this world and relieve people. As Jizo exists in this world, the appearance is like human monk, wearing a robe.

 

Sometime, Jizo wears a bib, because Jizo helps specially children.

Moreover, Jizo is also identified with the travelers' guardian deity, so we can see it often on the roadside.

 

”Jizo” or ”O-Jizo-sama" ?

In Japanese language, prefix "O" and surffix "sama" are used to add a feeling of politeness or respect to a object or person. 

Therefore, we use here "O-JIzo-sama".


🔸KUTANI "O-Jizo-sama" - unique ceramic painting

 

We introduce you the decoration object "O-Jiizo-sama" figurine from Kutani ware. It is wearing the elegant robe that is drawn decoratively with three-dimensional painting "Mori" (盛) or small dots painting "Aochibu" (青粒), which are the unique ceramic painting technique of Kutani ware.

●Painting technique: The "Mori (盛) "

This style is a method that is common in ornaments such as lions, lucky cats and O-jizo-sama. It features a three-dimensional pattern and texture created using specific paints which makes the product bold and exciting.

 

⇒ In the same way as squeezing a cream decoration in a cake,

the paint thickly decorates with a high viscosity paint. 

●Painting technique: The "Aochibu (青粒) "

This style has been spread in the Taisho era (1912-1926).

Fine blue-green points called the "blue grains" are line up on the ground color to create classiness. A great deal of skill is required to make the dots the same size, evenly spaced, and the same color.

Besides blue grains, there are also white grains and gold grains.
