Description

Buddhism rached Japan in the 6th century. Artists adopted the style and iconography of the new faith that had come form Korea. This wood carving shows the Bodhisattva Miroku. The term Bodhisattva (bosatsu in Japanese) is used for a being who has reached awakening but postpones entry into Nirvana and, out of compassion, remains with men until the end of the cycle of reincarnations.
