This print has been hand-colored.
According to the Dual Shinto doctrine formulated from the 9th century onward, Buddhist deities were the 'essence' or 'true form' (honji) of the Shinto kami, while the kami were the local manifestations or 'traces' (suijaku). Thus the Sun Goddess of Shinto was an emanation or avatar of Dainichi Nyorai (Skt Mahavairochana Tathagata), the Great Sun Buddha. This deity manifestation would be worshippeed at this temple in Nikko.Grove Dictionary of Art
