My first attempt at making larger jizos, 2 friends asked me to make larger jizos for their gardens, they pushed me to new

demensions….if you want to see more of my jizos go to my etsy site http://www.PeaceGarden.etsy.com

Jizo’s are often found along walking paths in Japan. Stones are placed at the feet of Jizo in memory of a loved one or as an offering of thanks to Jizo for watching over loved ones and travelers.

  1. Very nice. Never heard of jizos before. Very interesting. Now I better understand your blog’s title. 😉 Did you teach yourself how to make the jizos?

    • Hi Paz,
      Yes I did teach myself and design the jizo myself. It’s a figure in buddhism to protect women, children and travelers. Google jizo and
      you’ll learn endless things about jizo.
