ONI (鬼) SEIGAN SENJU (千手)
Thousand handsThe name "Senju" literally means "thousand hands" (千手), possibly referring to the clan being called "The clan with a thousand skills". ... The clan's symbol resembles a Vajra, both a symbol and a ritual object present in Buddhism and Hinduism. As a symbol, it represents both indestructible and irresistible force.
The Senju Clan (千手一族, Senju Ichizoku) was one of the clans responsible for founding the first shinobi village: Konohagakure - the other being their rival Uchiha clan. Although the clan itself no longer appears to exist as a group, the Senju continue to influence Konoha's politics through their philosophy of the Will of Fire and the corresponding interpretation of the role of the Hokage position. As such, three Senju have achieved the position of Hokage.

Senju Kannon (千手観音) from Isumu. Isumu focuses on recreating traditional Buddhist statues cherished by Japanese culture in our modern lives.
This is a replica of the national treasure of Nara, Japan. It is one of the most luxurious statues of the Isumu brand; after covering the statue with 120 pieces of gold leaf, the gold leaf is peeled off to reproduce the sense of history behind the original statue.
The Avalokitesvara uses its eleven faces to search for troubled sentient beings and saves them with its one thousand hands. These thousand hands are a manifestation of his infinite compassion. Although many places have been omitted from the shape of the small hands, this Buddha statue is really rare only in the shape of a thousand hands.
The official name of Senju Kannon is Juichimen Senju Sengen Jizai Bosatsu. As the number of his devout deeds is particularly large among Guanyin, he is also called the King of Guanyin (Kannon no Ou). He is considered to be one of the six Guanyins that save all lives. In the six realms-heaven, asura, human, animal, hungry ghost, hell-it is said that he will save the lives of those who are lost in the realm of hungry ghosts.
His appearance represents the compassion of Guanyin Bodhisattva. The 1000 hands symbolizes the boundless compassion in his heart. No matter what kind of person he is, he will extend a helping hand without exception. There is a pair of eyes in the palm of his hand, representing his wisdom to teach and guide mankind.
He has 42 hands holding various magical instruments and 10 faces on his head looking out; through these, he has taken away all kinds of suffering. This form was obtained when Guanyin requested the Tathagata, "I hope that there are a thousand hands, weapons and a thousand eyes to save all lives." The Amitabha Tathagata displayed on the top and forehead shows that he is the messenger of the Tathagata, come Come to this world to save us.
The belief in Shinshu Guanyin spread from China to Japan in the first half of the eighth century during the Nara period. In the second year (716 AD), the monk Xuan Fang (Genbo) traveled to China as a special envoy to the Tang Dynasty and stayed in Chang'an for nearly 20 years. In the 6th year of Tianping (734 AD), he returned to Japan and taught the belief in Avalokitesvara which was very popular in China at that time. In the 7th year of Tianping (735 AD), the scriptures of Thousand Hands Guanyin began with the Thousand Hands and Thousand Eyes scripture. They were first translated into Chinese in the Tang Dynasty in the first half of the eighth century, and then transcribed one by one in Japan. In a very short period of time, the belief in Avalokitesvara has flourished in Japan.
The common Thousand-Hand Avalokitesvara is represented by 42 hands as 1,000 hands; however, this is a precious example of a true representation of 1,000 hands. Although it is said to have 1,000 hands when it was completed, there are currently only 953 hands left-42 large and 911 small-the rest have been lost. The individually crafted arms are arranged in a fan shape so that they form a halo, which miraculously symbolizes Guanyin Bodhisattva's intention to spread compassion.
