金剛力士フィギュア

Kongo Rikishi Statues Figure

Many temples in Japan have “Kongo Rikishi Statues” standing left and right of the entrance, each on opposite sides. 
The two statues are a pair, and “Agyo” is the statue with an open mouth, while “Ungyo” has his mouth closed.They are assigned to be guardian deities to keep bad things out of the Shinto Shrine.

Many people are fans, and figures of them have been released already.
A new one releases in March, by the Buddha statue brand, “イSム” (Isumu) and they will be only 17 centimeters tall, however they are created faithfully. 

I believe it is good to make a powerful interior.

日本ではあちこちの寺院の入り口に
左右に分かれて「金剛力士像」が立っています。
口を開けた「阿形」と、口を閉じた「吽形」の
二つの像がセットになっています。
悪いものが神社に入らないように守護神の
役割をしています。

金剛力士像のファンは多く、
今までにフィギュアが発売されてきましたが、
仏像ブランド「イSム(いすむ)」が3月に発売するものは
高さ17センチと小型ですが、忠実に再現されています。
迫力のあるインテリアとして良さそうです。
