Description Fudô Myô-ô, the Immovable One, is depicted standing amongst rocks and bamboo. Behind him is a mandorla of flames. Fudô Myô-ô is one of the five Kings of Light who protect the Buddhist faithful. His fierce expression is intended to scared away evil spirits. He is almost always shown with a sword in his right hand and a rope in his left hand. This is part of a set with Walters 51.1100.
