Welcome to Master Carver Enku 円空 !
[1632? - 1695]


This BLOG is dedicated to my friend Grisha Dotzenko,
who introduced me to Enku more than 30 years ago.





This book by my friend and fellow kyudo archer Dotzenko covers all the aspects of Enku's art.
Grisha lived in Kamakura while we were there too, introducing me to Enku, Mokujiki and a lot more of Buddhist Art.
I owe a lot to this wonderful person.

Kodansha International Ltd. Toyko, 1976.
Monograph of the itinerant Buddhist priest who roamed remote villages in Japan
leaving thousands of his inimitable "hatchet-carved" statues.
