Eins drückt er zu

Buddha im Otagi-Nenbutsu-ji, Kyotaki

zweierlei Augen
das eine blickt streng und das
andere milde

 

The […] principal image was made in the middle of the Kamakura period (1192-1333) […]. The eyes of that statue are not symmetrical, expressing the duality of Buddha’s mercy: strictness on one side and tenderness on the other […]. [aus dem Tempelprospekt]
