Wonderful and powerful Japanese Kiri-e art depicting Fudo-Myoo a Buddhism Deity.

A beautifully crafted work of art worthy of the greatest artists of Kiri-e. A perfect gift for Kiri-e art lovers, Japanese Buddhism art collectors or for those who wish to bring a strong and spectacular decorative note to its interior.

Made in washi paper on a shikishi with an iridescent purple background giving a magnificent intensity to the golden and black color that makes up the character of Fudo-Myoo. Kiri-e (切り絵) comes from the characters for “cut” (kiri) and “picture” (e) and refers to the art of paper cutting.

This is an ancient art brought to Japan from China about 1400 years ago. At first it was used for gifts to temples and home decoration. Then, practical Japanese people found that this art can be used for making kimono templates. It was proclaimed as a living national treasure.

Fudo myoo (不動明王, king of immutable wisdom) is a deity of the Japanese Buddhist who comes originally from India whose name is Acala. The Fudo-myoo is the ultimate protector. He is the physical manifestation of Dainichi Nyorai, which is one of the best-known of the Myōō. Fudo-myoo is the central deity and the most recognizable myōō.

The Fudo-myoo may look angry but his purpose is to change anger into salvation. Given its popularity, it is not uncommon to see his statue around many places in Japan, especially in nature along a mountain path or near a waterfall. Despite the bad-ass appearance, Fudo-myoo is considered to be a good guy, subduing evil forces and convincing unbelievers into following the Buddhist law. He is often pictured sitting or standing on a rock, depicting his unmovable faith. A great representation of your own solidarity, strength, and unwavering principles.

According to Japanese Buddhist belief, the Fudo-myoo can also bring monetary fortune, and as such is also a symbol of good luck and prosperity. He is also the patron of people born in the zodiac year of the Rooster. The Fudo-myoo is usually pictured with a very angry facial expression, with a very wrinkled brow, squinted eyes, and bared teeth. He usually holds a sword in one hand and a lariat (a type of rope) in the other.
