The Zao Gongen statue places its left hand on its waist while grasping an object (being lost) with its uplifted right hand. It carries its entire body with its left leg, while its right leg is held upward. In the case of this statue, it faces front as if it is adjusting its posture to straighten up and internalizes its power and tension by stretching its left leg vertically. Such a powerful expression is reminiscent of early Zao Gongo statues. The balanced body and head parts, the mighty chest and the thin arms and legs clearly reflect the features of the late Heian period (twelfth century). However, the statue has a stern look with its big eyes and nose, narrowed eyes and facial expression of biting its bottom lip with its upper teeth. These features are seen in old style statues among other Zao Gongen statues of the time. Although it wears traditional clothes – Joraku, Koshinuno and Kun – it is not wearing the leather that Zao Gongen should wear. The bottom edge of the Kun is rolled around both legs and the end jerks upward from both kneecaps. It can be said that this style was inherited from the early designs. This statue, which is believed to be supported by mid-sized pillars, was created using the lost wax method and has holes that lead to the inside of the statue on the bottom half of the hair in the Sokei style (one hairstyle) and on the back of the right foot. The copper is thin and a piece of filled metal on the back of the Mosuso was removed. Although there are many cracks on the surface, they are covered by metal. The crown (which might have been a crown known as a Sankokan) on the head was lost. There are some holes for Yoraku (clothing accessories) on the front of the body. This Zao Gongenzo inherited the traditional style of the late Heian period and can be considered one of the best of its kind.
