The deity Seishi stands for wisdom and in Japan is always represented as part of a triad. In a temple, he and his attendant Kannon (Chinese: Guanyin) would have flanked the Buddha Amida. Seishi is invariably seated to Amida's right with his hands folded before his chest in obeisance of Amida’s higher power.
