Restoration of Statue of Fudō Myō-ō [Skt. Acala-vidyaraja] Seated With One Leg Pendant and Accompanied by Two Attendants. Property of a Private Collector

​鎌倉時代前期 修復年 2009年

With a fearless gaze and a well-proportioned, toned body, the feel of this statue is typical of those made during the early Kamakura period (1185–1333). While it was undergoing restoration at the laboratory an inscription referring to a previous repair was discovered inside, allowing us to identify the sculptor as being Sōkei, a member of the Keiha school. There is a record of a Sōkei who created a seated figure of Jizō Bosatsu [Skt. Kṣitigarbha] for Zuirinji Temple in Shizuoka Prefecture so we know that he was a disciple of Unkei’s father, Kōkei, which means he was a contemporary of Unkei, Kaikei, Jōkaku, Genkei, Jikkei, etc.
