About this artwork

Seitaka Doji is one of the two boy attendants of Fudo Myo-o (the Immovable or Unshakable One). Sculptural triads of these figures exist from the late Heian period (794–1185). In these triads, Seitaka Doji has a troll-like appearance, which contrasts with the placid features of his fellow attendant, Kongara Doji.
