Statue from the Heian period.
Made from one piece of kaya wood カヤ材の一木造り (Torreya nucifera). 73 cm high.
It is most probably from the year 993, when the statue of Yakushi Nyorai was made.

- quote -
The main hall of Zensuiji Temple is a designated National Treasure, and one of the three Konan Sanzan temples.
It is a popular spot in the fall, when wonderful crimson leaves can be seen. The interior also features no less than 15 Buddha statues, including representative pieces from the Tempyo period (710 - 794) and the Heian period (794 - 1185), all of which are more than worth making the trip to see them.
