Jizou made a bodhisattva vow, to delay his own enlightenment until Hell is empty. He protects those who are in Hell, as well as children. Mothers of sick children, or women who wish to become mothers, promise to buy a new red bib for one of Jizou's statues when their prayer is granted - so the profusion of bibs is a testament to his powers.
