Jizo statue at Hozan-ji temple, Nara, Japan Protects the children

Jizo holding the baby in arm... so beautiful! Jizo was a Japanese Monk, who achieved Nirvana, but instead of entering paradise, chose to go to the cave where children who died under the age of two went to await reincarnation, so that someone would be there to care for them and love them, until the end of Time. (Small statues dedicated to deceased children are also called Jizo)

I don't know anything about the site where this image is hosted, but just the image itself struck me. What a beautiful Jizo!
