This statue is a Jizo Jade Buddha with a size of half-length six (image height 130.5 cm from the sitting surface), whose production dates from the end of Heian period to the beginning of Kamakura.
At present, the surface is covered with paper paste, and there are parts that do not show the appearance of the original sculpture, but structurally the root stem material is a split wood using a huge tree of about 45 cm on both sides. It is an image that depicts the flow of Buddhists who played an active part in Hiraizumi at the end of the Heian period, such as leaving an image core bundle (zushishinzuka) and leaving a front and back bundle (zengoku).
It is an example of the possibility of local production using wisteria wood, and it is also the oldest statue in the prefecture as a Jizo Tansu half-brow statue.

As a feature on the form, there is a dressing form.
It is the same as usual to put on a large coat (thought) on a kun, but you can see a 衫 on the back with a bias on the right shoulder.
In addition, a knot of 裙 (kun) can be seen in front of the large costume (Danai), which has been known since around the 11th century, and is also connected to the Jizo statue of Chuson-ji.

As mentioned above, this statue is extremely valuable as a Jizo Tansu statue that remains in Iwate, and is also extremely important as an example closely related to Hiraizumi culture.
