English: one thousand bodies of Jizo (Sentai Jizō). The monk Enkū carved 100,000 images of Buddhas and bodhisattvas including one thousand Jizo wood sculptures. In one Jizo garden in Japan, one thousand Jizo images are hidden among the tress. It is said that a person who looks long and carefully enough will find their own face on one of these Jizos.
