Buddha Root

This is a stone statue of Buddha (jizou in Japanese) positioned in front of a withered tree on the grounds of Engakuji Temple in Kita-kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The large temple complex comprises 18 temples and was founded in 1282 by a Chinese Zen monk and was intended to honor warriors slain on both sides of the attempted Mongol invasion from 1274 to 1281.
