A general term for Buddhist sculptors *busshi t, working in Nara during and after the Kamakura period. Pre-Kamakura Nara sculptors were called *nara busshi ޗǕt. The first nanto busshi were the *Keiha ch based in Koufukuji , Nara. Keiha included the sculptors Koukei Nc, Unkei ^c (?-1223), Kaikei c and his pupil Eikai h (mid-13c) and Koushun Nr (14c). There are many examples of their work in Koufukuji, including the Kongou Rikishi ͎m in the Kokuhoukan by Koukei's pupil Joukei c, as well as in other Nara temples such as at Toudaiji 厛. The second important school that formed in the 13c was the *Zenpa Ph, who were closely associated with Saidaiji 厛. Important sculptors associated with this school included Zen'en P~, Zenkei Pc (?-1257), and Zenshun Pt, who made the famous portrait statue of Saidaiji priest Eizon b(1280). In the mid and late 14c *tsubai bussho ֈ䕧, *takama bussho ԕ, nobori-ooji bussho oH, and fujiyama bussho xmR were set up, and in the 16c *shukuin busshi h@t were very active. These workshops continued production until the Edo period.
