Photographer's Note

This is several of 1500 unique rakan statues on the nihon-ji temple grounds in Chiba. A rakan (or arhat in Sanskrit) is an enlightened disciple of Buddhism, one who has reached the final stage and passed the death-rebirth cycle of reincarnation.

Many of the statues are headless due to vandals and natural forces as you see here.
