A statue of Ojizo-sama, known as a protector of children, particularly those who died before their parents. The red bib and hat are traditionally placed on him by grieving parents as thanks for helping their children navigate the afterlife.
I didn’t want to use my dog in one of my challenge photographs so soon after week 10, but I’ve been traveling and didn’t have the opportunity to take a picture that fit the theme. So here is a photo of a dog who was so happy to see us that he slept for 40 hours straight after we picked him up.
I’ll be sharing more photos from my travels over the next few days!
I'm taking a different themed photo every week for 52 weeks. For more information about this project, please visit the link in my Instagram bio.
