The bodhisattva Kannon (Sanskrit: Avalokiteshvara) is represented here with Esoteric Buddhist attributes: the wish-fulfilling jewel (nyoi hōju) and the wheel (rin) of Buddhist teachings. Carved into the base are female donors’ names; this votive offering to a temple may have been in connection with the monthly jūkuya-kō ritual for the health and safe delivery of children.
