Senju Kannon #40

Kamakura Period, 1251-1255
Sanjusangen-do Temple, Kyoto

The smaller Kannon are all life-size, being around 5' 6" tall. They were created by Tankei and a team of seventy sculptors working under his direction. This Kannon, #40, was carved by Tankei himself.

In 2000, the statue - a National Treasure - was moved to the Tokyo National Museum for display.
