The face was expressed with anger and rage, the left foot stomped on the rock and the right leg was kicked up aloft. Because statues of Zaō gongen were often enshrined in the temples in mountains, most of the works were made from metal to survive in severe environments. The material was applied not only bronze, but also iron.
