QTY:
A Buddhist pilgrim jacket, circa 1880-1910 in Linen. It is the type of jacket worn by Buddhist pilgrims as they travel a prescribed pilgrimage route and as they make their way from one temple to the other along the route. Buddhist pilgrimage consisting of visiting 88 shrines in Shikoku Island.

Often, especially in the old days, this pilgrimage was done on foot and was an arduous and time-consuming act of devotion. At each temple visited a red stamp(s) particular to that temple would be imprinted directly onto the coat. In this case we see just a few of these. Important to note are the hand-drawn, black charcoal ink-based bonji or Sanskrit seed syllables which can be seen on the coat.
