Ksitigarbha is the true form of Komori Gongen, which points to Jizo-do at Mt. Mitoku. This equestrian statue of the armored Ksitigarbha on a white horse was enshrined in Jizo-do Hall in 1523 by a Buddhist craftsman from Kyoto. This is the oldest signed piece of Buddhist figures and paintings collected by war commanders who fought for the power to rule. It is also the oldest signed wooden equestrian statue with a white horse.
