Kanzenon Bosatsu (Bodhisattva of Mercy and Salvation, or Goddess of Mercy) is believed to save the living things by changing its figure in thirty three reincarnations. There are many styles of statue of Kanzenon Bosatsu. Yoryu Kannon is one of them. It carries a twig of willow with its hand, so it is called Yoryu (Willow) Kannon, presumably meaning that it grants wish of the living things like leaves of willow gently swinging in the wind. In Japan, a toothpick made of willow is used widely, initially at Buddhist temples, to make oral cavity clean. Therefore, the name of this statue may reflect people’s wish to prevent diseases and to keep them healthy. This Kannon statue has been often depicted in a picture, mostly in feminine appearance. The statue is combined with the pedestal, and they were carved from a single piece of wood. Such carving style was rare in old Buddhist statues in Japan. Silent wrath and inner reflection is well expressed on its face. Between the breast and waist, another Sekitai (Belt) is carved and it looks like an undergarment, on which mark of colored pattern slightly remains. This statue still retains remnants of splendid sculptures of the Tenpyo period.
