This site is my tribute to Japanese Buddhist sculpture and, to a lesser degree, Shintō art.This online dictionary contains English definitions for over sixty thousand Chinese terms (as of May 2013), along with pronunciations in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese.
After moving to Japan in 1993, I became intrigued by the many deities & faces of Japanese Buddhism & Shintōism.
While lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogs and glossy art magazines are much appreciated and easier to read, these publications tend to ignore the religious underpinnings of Asian art.
Instead of providing a broad historical view of the statue and its significance as a “living icon,” they tend to emphasize a piecemeal "bite-size" approach involving aesthetics, dating and provenance, technique, material, genre, and style.
Third, this project was prompted by a dissatisfaction with the online sites of the great repositories of Japanese Buddhist sculpture -- the national museums in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara.
These sites don’t offer any systematic A-to-Z access to their impressive art collections. Even so, the situation is much improved compared to only 15 years ago, thanks largely to advances in web technology.
