In Japan, Bishamonten is thought of as an armor-clad god of warfare or warriors & a punisher of evildoers – a view that is at odds with more pacific Buddhist king. Bishamon is portrayed holding a spear in one hand & a small pagoda in the other hand, the latter symbolizing the divine treasure house, whose contents he both guards & gives away. In Japanese folklore, he is one of the Japanese Seven Gods of Fortune.

【奈良・東大寺/僧形八幡神坐像(1201年)】檜材、彩色。非常に写実的で地蔵菩薩を思わせる像。内刳りされており、体内から長文の墨書銘が発見された。錫杖、光背、台座は当初のもの。頭の中に重源上人ゆかりの五輪塔が収められている。 pic.twitter.com/kNhx5boUwY
