This statue was carved from a cypress wood (hinoki) which was dyed in a red color to imitate sandalwood. The robe was decorated with cut gold leaf. The influence of Chinese Song dynasty can be seen on a decorative hair style and a draping robe. This statue was originally the principal image of Zōkezō-in in Shitennō-ji Temple, Osaka Prefecture. The various objects including sutra were deposited in the hollow of the statue.
