PURCHASE A LICENSE

Studio Meiji 1890s Unknown
This Buddhist priest holds a begging bowl and a staff. He is wearing a monk’s stole, called kesa made of sumptuous silk brocade. Kesa are draped over one shoulder and under the opposite arm in order to wrap it around the body. They are believed to resemble a garment made for Buddha by his mother. Of a simple rectangular form, they have barely changed since Buddhism was first introduced in Japan during the sixth century. See blog entry.
