Lit. gem or precious stone base. The most common base for an image of *Fudou Myouou •s“®–¾‰¤. A type of rock base *iwaza ŠâÀ, it generally consists of polygon-shaped cubes piled up on top of one another with the center as the most narrow section. Although around five to seven cubes are common, the number of the layers is not consistent. The sides of the piled-up sections are usually painted with graded colors in the *ungen ã‚ムmanner. The sculpture of Fudou at Touji “ŒŽ› in Kyoto sits on a large wooden shitsushitsuza, and a similar type is often represented in painted images of Fudou. Examples are found in the earliest esoteric paintings of Fudou, such as the 9c Takao Mandara ‚”ö™Ö䶗… at Jingoji _ŒìŽ› in Kyoto and the Sai-in Ryoukai Mandara ¼‰@—¼ŠE™Ö䶗… at Touji, also from the 9c.
