While Tenjin did not live in the Edo or Meiji era he was the saint many scholars from those eras turned to in their darkest hour.

The bronze statue of Tenjin below can be seen at the Garden of Associates at the California Institute of Technology (CALTECH).

I love that California has a lot of pockets of history ... bronze statues are pretty much a Western thing aren't they? Meaning something like this - would it have been cast and displayed in Japan?
