Hōnen and Shinran wouldn't wear the begging bowl. There are iconographic differences between the statues of founders of Japanese Buddhism. Hōnen and Shinran may sometimes look similar, which comes from the biographical background. Both were involved in the Hijiri movement so they would wear the same clothes, but Hōnen is typically depicted seated, whereas Shinran is shown standing with staff, hat and prayer beads.
Btw. it isn't quite right, what you wrote about Aizen Myōō (or rather I've never heard about that interpretation, that he is being called King of Love, "because of his great love for the Buddha who also protects him. He also loves all sentient beings and works for their benefit."). On JAANUS
Aizen Myōō's name is explained in the following way:
"The word 'raga' originally referred to the color red and, by extension, the passions. Aizen is an esoteric Buddhist deity whose nature expresses the idea that earthly desires are a pure aspiration to enlightenment, bodaishin 菩提心, and these desires need not inspire illusion or cause suffering."
But I really like you photos! Great work
