AS IS TRANSLATED JIZO, OR JIZOU, A DIVINE GUARDIAN OF THE UNBORN AND STILLBORN. THE LOVELY STATUE OF THIS DIVINITY IS FOUND NEAR KYOTO, JAPAN, IN THE SANZENIN GARDEN AROUND A TEMPLE BELONGING TO THE TENDAI SECT OF BUDDHISM. THE PLACE IS PEACEFUL IN THE EARLY MORNING, WHEN THE TOURISTS ARE STILL IN THE SHOPS AROUND TO BUY PICKLES. THERE IS A TENDERNESS IN THIS STONE FACE VERY APPROPRIATE TO RESPOND TO THE SILENT PEACE OF THE MOSS. TIME OF MEDITATION. TIME FOR A CONTENTED SIGH.
