A Buddhist image which is seated, as opposed to standing *ryuuzou —§‘œ. The most common seated position is *kekka fuza Œ‹æææ卿, also called the full-lotus posture, a cross-legged position of meditation for a Buddhist image *nyorai ”@—ˆ or tathagata. The hanka shiyui ”¼ææŽvˆÒ position, a pose of meditation in which the figure has the right leg crossed over the pendant left leg, is also frequently employed on bodhisattva *bosatsu •ìŽF images. More rarely shown positions include: *kiza –¥¿, where both legs are stretched out to one side; *koki ŒÓæì (a kneeling posture); *rinnouza —Ö‰¤¿ (seated with one knee raised), among others.
Images which have both legs pendant over a throne are called *izou ˜ß‘œ and are also regarded as zazou images.
