Jizo are very familiar objects of folk belief in Japan, and are made from sculptured stone. There are various types of Jizo, but most of them are icons dedicated to the devine protection of children. When I paint Jizos I have a calm and peaceful feeling. On these pages are some of nearly 100 Jizo paintings I have made.
