Staying true to his minimalist style, designer and Portland local Matthew Leavitt creates these charming Jizo statues. In Zen Buddhism, Jizos are guardians, symbolizing courage, optimism, and benevolence. Meant to evoke thankfulness and deep respect, Leavitt’s figures are presented in a traditional Gassho pose, with palms together and fingers pointed to the sky. Whether featured on a shelf or mantelpiece or tucked in an out of the way niche, each glance at one of these beatific figurines is sure to encourage mindfulness and calm.
