This lantern is a commissioned portrait of Fudo Myoo (also known as Acala). Fudo is one of the Five Bright Kings, powerful deities in Japanese Buddhism and folk religion. Fudo (the Immovable One) is believed to protect Buddhism and its true adherents. I wrote a detailed description of the project here.
