I love this guy. The expression on his face makes me smile every time I look at him. He landed in my front room with a couple other Uncommon Goods yard decorations, but for whatever reason every one of them are a great fit. If/when they ever make it to the yard they'll still look fabulous!

    Comments about UncommonGoods Smiling Jizo Garden Sculpture:

    Jizu hides unborn babies in his sleeves and sneaks them into heaven. My sister in law read that and sent me this guy after we suffered a late term pregnancy loss. His smiling face brings me a lot of comfort still and I thought he was a touching gift in rememberance of our sweet baby.

      Jizo is the protector of children. I got Jizo for her because she loved the figure and because I want him to protect her while she is away at college.

          Very cute and the size makes it easy to find a place, although I think it is too small for the garden

                    This item was purchased as a gift for my mom, who can use as much positive energy as is available. She loves to garden, and Jizo is a perfect compliment to the plants and decor in her front yard. The statue is small, but attractive. You can't help but smile when you see this little guy.
