This beautiful print is of the Five Wisdom Kings of Esoteric Buddhism. The Wisdom Kings function as the guardians of Buddhism, and wrathful manifestations of Buddhas. Whereas Buddhas represent pure concepts, and bodhisattvas teach through compassion, Wisdom Kings teach through fear, shocking nonbelievers into faith.
Printed on standard-size Shikishi paperboard, which originated over a thousand years ago in Heian Japan, and which is still used for traditional painting, writing, calligraphy, illustrations, autographs, waka/haiku poetry and more.
