Zuijin are Shinto protector deities modeled after two of the most powerful positions within the Japanese court during the Heian period (794–1185). In these sculptures of the Edo period (1615–1868), they are dressed as Heian-period captains of the imperial bodyguard, in courtier’s attire of the highest rank.
