1500: Gentle Jizo (Kuroiwa)

The six Jizo figures stand among the flowers by the mill stream. The words above them are more prose than poetry...

Isoganakutemo / ii desu-yo / kyô-wo / tanoshiku / nonbiri-to
"No need to hurry - make today fun and take it easy"

The artist was born in Nagano in 1947, and specialises in Buddhist themes, with a distinctive whimsically warm style. (Kuroiwa is his family name - he signs his pictures with a stylised seal of his given name, Toyotaka.)
