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!

    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.

                  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.
