What: National Treasures of Mii-dera Temple

When: March 7,[masked]:00 PM

Meetup Description: National Treasures of Mii-dera Temple

I used to despised Buddhist statues. To me, they were obsolete relics of Japanese culture. Yes, I was very naive. After cultivating my interest in art in New York and coming back to Japan, I started to realize that best types of art I can see in this country are Buddhist statues. Like Michelangelo and Bernini created sculptures for Churches, best craftsmen of the time created Buddhist statues enshrined in renounced Japanese temples.

The exhibition showcases a collection of rarely displayed national treasures and important cultural properties. This is a great opportunity for us to see and discover interesting traditional art works in Japan. I would like to check out this exhibition with some of you.

Location: Suntory Museum of Art
Time: 2:00 PM
Admission Fee: ?1,300
