A Buddhist sculpture workshop *bussho , located in Kyoto's Shichijou Takakura q, which was founded by Jouchou's 蒩 (?-1057) son Kakujo o and active from the late Fujiwara period until the Edo period. Kakujo was followed by Koukei Nc, Unkei ^c (?-1223), and his sons, who formed the *Keiha ch school of sculptors. They worked in shichijou bussho, as well as in their headquarters in Nara Koufukuji . Sources disagree about which workshop was set up first, but shichijou bussho is considered a branch of the Keiha, and the term shichijou bussho is occasionally used to refer to the Keiha in general. Examples of shichijou bussho work include the famous central Senju Kannon ω (1254) and 10 of the standing Kannon figures in Kyoto's Rengeouin @؉@ (Sanjuusangendou O\Oԓ), made by Unkei's son Tankei Xc (1173-1256). Several members of shichijou bussho formed separate workshops, which are in a broad sense considered to be part of the same school. Important branch schools include: shichijou nishi bussho 𐼕 established by Unkei's grandson Kouyo N_ in the 14c; shichijou naka bussho 𒆕, established in the 13c by Unkei's third son Kouben N; and shichijou higashi bussho 𓌕 established in the 14c by Koushun Nr, son of Unkei's sixth son Unjo ^.
