Overstock has some of the best quality Jizo statues available in the U.S. I have purchased three different designs by Indonesia's Nyoman Suriani from Overstock. Each has been an outstanding addition to my gardens. I have given them as gifts to friends. They look great displayed indoors and out.
I had purchased this little Jizo for the garden, but placed him in a corner on the window sill in my sunroom, and he seems to like it there -- and I like having him there! I've received compliments on him. Well made, with a wonderful expression on his face.
And that's what I call him--my little guy. He is adorable. Small, but heavy. I placed him outside near a new patio we put in. He is wonderful. I love him. Sitting right in a small space he fits right in no matter what your decor. Very well crafted. Everyone should have one for their home.
I came across this Jizo while browsing for Christmas gifts in December. I loved him so much that I bought seven and sent six out to my family members. I opened each one, encased in tightly packed shredded paper, before wrapping and repackaging for sending to all parts of the USA. It felt like bringing a child into the world as the crown of his head emerged. Everyone loved their statue. I kept one for myself and have him settled among house plants. It gives me comfort and a feeling of peace to look upon that beautiful face.
I bought this for a present and I was very happy to see it out of the box. It was a perfect size and just charming to look at. My friend that I bought it for decided that she liked it so much that instead of putting in her garden she put it in her house in front of the fireplace.
