Beschreibung

The violet 7″ comes in a luxury packaging, manually silk-screened, so each copy is different from others. This edition is released in 350 numbered copies only. And here some details about the vinyl serie. One of the most beloved of all Japanese divinities, the MIZUKO JIZO Buddha takes care of and represents stillborn, miscarried and aborted foetuses. Unique to Japan, the ceremonies surrounding the jizo were created and developed by women. Over the centuries, the image of the mizuko jizo has changed, from a dignified, adult figure, to a serene looking monk-child with a Buddha smile. The jizo has a double purpose. The image both represents the soul of the deceased infant/foetus, and is also the deity who takes care of children on their otherworld journey. The ritual of honouring the foetus or stillborn is called mizuko kuyo. The word mizuko means „water child,“ or „deceased infant/foetus,“ and kuyo means „memorial service.“ (Ars Benevola Matter) MJ01
