In Esoteric Buddhism in Japan,the Fudo Myō-ō is the messenger of Dainichi Nyorai and protects the Buddhist faith.
"Gyoku-gan" is a classical method for fashoning the eyes of a wooden buddhist statue using the crystal stones.


This pedestal is called 瑟瑟座(Shitu Shitu za) .
Fudo Myō-ō holds a sword called "Hō-ken" in right hand. It represents wisdom cutting through ignorance. Fudoson combats the three poison(greed, anger, ignorance) to save us. 
Fudo Myō-ō holds a rope called "Kensaku" in left hand to catch and bind up demons and evil and to protect  human beings that have slipped out the last line defense.
