Why this is a
Masterpiece

The style is characterized by distinct features and realistic garment folds, traits that are similar to the most highly-regarded examples from the Nara period (710-794). This is an important Cultural Property.

History of the Object
This statue was one of the attendants that flanked the statue of Yakushi Nyorai (Bhaisajyaguru) at Kozanji temple. The other attendant, Gakko Bosatsu, (Candraprabha) is now owned by the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. Originally, the triad is said to have been housed in Kinrinji temple in Kyoto prefecture.
