Nara, trois trésors du bouddhisme japonais

An exhibition of key Buddhist statues from Kofukuji temple, Nara, introduces the spirit of devotion and beauty that have been cultivated for over 1,000 years.

Nara is known as Japan’s point of origin. The city has a rich heritage of Buddhist statues, a legacy of cultural exchange across the Eurasian continent. Nara’s temples and shrines have a long religious history which has in turn fostered the development of an artistic culture rooted in religious traditions.
This exhibition will showcase a standing wooden Jizo Bosatsu statue(Important Cultural Property) and standing wooden statues of Kongo Rikishi (A-gyo and Un-gyo) (National Treasures) from a collection that has been protected and passed down by Kofukuji Temple. Usually only available to those who visit the temple in Nara, the exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to experience the beauty, power and spirituality of the Buddhist statues, elevating the appeal of the ancient city which became the foundation of Japanese culture as the terminal point of the Silk Road.
