17 May 2014, Miyajima Island, Japan. While exploring the Daishõ-in temple, I spotted these small statues with beanie hats. These are so-called Rakan statues. Each of these (500 in total) represent a Buddhist Monk, and all have unique facial expressions. Quite a mystical and serene atmosphere around the temple grounds.
