Description of the artwork «Handwritten portrait of Confucius, Manjushri»

Manuscript portrait of Confucius Well, I’ll start from the beginning .... The work itself has two sides on one of them is Buddhist icon painting ..

In the photo, where three large hieroglyphs are written from top to bottom, the temple of Mount Mioken. It is written in Japanese. Although they also have hieroglyphs identical with China.

I just want to pay attention that it is written on a scrap, and a scrap is pasted on the portrait. (From the side of the portrait) And here is the culprit of the triumph of the eyes .. huh ... the eyes are ready for the triumph?)) ..

Now turn to the translation of the texts: As promised:

1. Mentioned Temple 妙 見 寺 (み ょ う け ん じ) Myokenji Temple. Temples with this name are full throughout Japan. General site of the temple

2. This temple is from the province of Shimos (Shimos (下 総 国 kazusa no kuni, Страна Shimos ’country or 北 総 州 hokusoshu :,« North Fusa province ’)) is a historical province of Japan in the Kanto region in the east of Honshu island.). The exact location of the temple is Chiba (千葉)

3. Well, above the portrait of the elder - three Buddhist commandments (in my free translation):
- 除 死 定 生 - Down with death, give life!
- 益 筭 延夀 - less worries - longer life!
- 减 罪 增 福 - less sins - more happiness!
妙 見 寺 【ト ッ プ ペ ー ジ】

(Translation by Sergey Savosin).
