Once day we were asked by our customer to repair their Nichiren-Mandala. Every Buddhism sect has its own “Honzon”, which is a principal image of Buddha. (Honzon basically stands for something very precious.) For people who believes Nichiren-sect, Nichiren-Manradala with “Namu-Myouhou-Rengekyou” 7 kanji (Chinese characters) phrase is a general Honzon.
“Namu-Myouhou-Rengekyou” means “I devote myself to the teachings of the Lotus Sutra.”
Our customer came to us for help because they found the kakejiku was damaged. It was hung in the “butsudan” (family Buddhist altar) over hundred years!
This kakejiku was from our customer’s grandfather’s time and it was pretty worn out.
What we did was to wash the dirt and the stain away and to replace materials.
We let our customer to choose mounting materials and this one is known as “Renge (lotus) pattern.”
One more thing, we introduced “jizai-gake (height adjustable stick)” and they were very pleased with it. If you have one, there’s no need for adjusting height by tying strings onwards.
Please contact ART NOMURA for all your artwork-mounting needs.
