The portable shrine with the image of Senju-Kannon Bodhisattva (Japanese: Bosatsu) was made with the use of the most valued techniques, and the precision of the fine exposure of details emphasises the high class of the exhibit. The external surfaces of the shrine are covered with lacquer, while the interior and the Bodhisattva figure are gilded. For Buddhists, the solid figure, known in iconography also as the “eleven-headed” Kannon, remains, at the same time, the Bodhisattva of Great Mercy. Japanese sacral works, particularly of high class, belong to extremely precious exhibits, because, as objects of cult, they rarely left their native temples.
In the collection donated to the National Museum in Kraków by Feliks Jasieński, Japan was represented by about 6,500 exhibits. They included paintings, sculptures, fabrics, kimonos, obi belts, lacquer items, ceramics, brass items, templates for dying fabrics and other art-and-craft products, as well as military items.
