Jizaiten Japanese Processional Mask
Processional Masks of the Devas: Jizaiten. (Spirit/Sacred Center) (late 10th Century), Kyoto National Museum, Japan. One of the Deva Guardians of Buddhism said to guard the 12 sacred directions, this entity represents the highest state of existence before achieving enlightenment. Its expressive, ornately carved face is cast in quality designer resin, and then delicately hand-painted to capture its ancient Asian details. A wonderful addition to the walls of any gallery collection!
