Pigeons at Sensoji (Asakusa Kannon Temple)

https://asia.si.edu/object/F2000.1a-d
<p>The scene is autumnal. Pigeons are variously comported in front of the main complex of building at Sensoji (Asakusa Kannon Temple) in Tokyo. The location is indicated in the inscription. Falling gingko leaves suggest the season. The atmosphere seems to evoke clouds of incense or the settling in of a dusky haze.</p>

Hibo Kannon

https://asia.si.edu/object/F1902.225
<p>This monumental painting represents Kannon in the guise of a maternal figure who nurtures an infant surrounded by a halo. Both figures hover among clouds high above the stark landscape of the world where the child will live. The painting exhibits both a signature and seal.</p>
