Description

The gardians of the gate are protecting divinities placed at the entrance to Buddhist monasteries. Their tormented faces were believed to repel mavolent forces. Their huge proportions (up to 8 m in height) further reinforce their awe-inspiring character. The Japanese tradition always presents this theme in the form of two warriors : one wiht the mouth open, the order wiht the mouth shut.
