- Recent scholarship associates this sculpture of a bodhisattva (enlightened being) with Kaikei (fl. 11801220), a master sculptor who contributed to the revival of Buddhist sculpture in the Kamakura period (11851333). Proportion and balance in the figure, realistic yet sensitive modeling of the facial features, and graceful, regular arrangement of the garment folds are marks of Kaikei's style.
