Protecting Jizo - Golden
Paperweight statue in the image of the Jizo Bosatsu Buddha.
Jizo is a representation of the most revered Buddha in Japan. He is not only the guardian of travelers but also the protector of children and motherhood. Traditionally the Japanese make him abundant offerings of food. They adorn his statue with a wool scarf and hat for him not to be cold and a red bib not to get dirty.
