A priest found a stone statue of Jizō in wind and rain, took pity on it, build a roof for it and painted it white. Shortly after a wart in the face of the priest disappeared and his skin became all beautiful and young. When someone's wish is fulfilled, they often paint the whole body of the statue with white powder.
