A guild of Buddhist sculptors active in Nara (see *nanto busshi st) in the Muromachi period. Their workshop was called shukuin bussho h@ or shukuin bussho-ya h@, after its location in Shukuin h@. The shukuin busshi were originally carpenters and wood craftsmen, kiyose banshou ؊ԏ, who switched to making Buddhist images. They were one of the first groups of Buddhist sculptors *busshi t, since the Tenpyou period to work as laymen, without assuming the status of monks. Important shukuin busshi included Genji , Genzaburou OY, Genshirou lY, and Gengorou ܘY. They made many wooden statues, often commissioned by small temples in the Nara area, for example the Shakazou ߉ޑ and Yakushizou t in Higashida Yakushidou ct (1545).
