Early Spring exhibition: The Buddha from the stone-the Oriental sculpture collection of Yongqing Bunko-[Eisei Bunko]

Early Spring exhibition: The Buddha from the stone-the Oriental sculpture collection of Yongqing Bunko-[Eisei Bunko]

After seeing the Higo Hosokawa garden which I introduced last time, I have seen the exhibition “The Buddha who was made from the early spring exhibition-the Oriental sculpture collection of the Yongqing Bunko” in the adjacent Yongqing Bunko. This exhibition has already ended, but I think that I will keep the article for reference because it was an exhibition of the collection that seems to be exhibited in the future.

The exhibition is a collection of Buddha statues gathered by the founder of the Yongqing Bunko (Moriko), which was particularly India and Chinese goods. As I wrote at the beginning, I have already finished, but I will introduce some of the works that I liked along the exhibition structure.

The Gods of India.
First, the corner of the statue of the India. In the eighth and tenth centuries, they were lined with items from the Perla era.

“Four mechanism arm female seated statue”India Parera (8th-10th century)
This one sits on the stand, one leg is set up like snubbed, and the other leg is a woman statue of the posture (like ‘ hankashiizou ‘ speculation image). There are four arms and the rounded figure looks graceful. It was a work that felt the whiff India including posture.

In the center of this room, there were India art books.

“Maitreya Seated statue”India Parera (8th-10th century)
This is also the same as the image of the previous Maitreya, the hand is tied to the application mark, the other hand has Ryuhua tree. This is a slurry plump, and it seemed to feature a deep-carved face. It is quite handsome w

“Tarrah Bodhisattva statue”India Parera (9th-10th century)
This is a statue of Sanson form, and it is a female image with three pillars. The center is a statue of Tarrah, the right is an acre of Rage’s face, and the left is Asoka Khan ter Marleach. Because it is a little familiar name, India God? There is a three-dimensional feeling, and it was made to feel the movement to stand a little twisting the waist.

Stone Buddha in the Tang Dynasty of China.
The following is the Stone Buddha corner of the Tang Dynasty of China. It was only four points here.

“Buddha Seated Statue”China Tang Dynasty (early 8th century)
This is a seated statue of Buddha, unlike the Buddha image of the India a while ago, it is a figure similar to the Japan Buddha image with the head of the spiral hair. The expression which understands well wearing a thin cloth is splendid, and the Hida is flowing gracefully. The body is also felt smooth and thick. The expression was quietly meditating and it was a dignified figure.

Chinese North Wei-Tang Dynasty stone carving >
The most of the works were in the corner of the stone carving of the North Wei-Tang Dynasty in China.

“Tetrahedron”China West Wei era (early 6th century)
This is a work in which Buddha statues were carved in each of the four sides of the prism. The Sanson of the Buddha and the bodhisattva are lined up, but it is worn and the details are difficult to understand. I can feel that it has been a long time of about 1500 years like the article of the sixth century. The head seemed to be deformed because of the wear with a slightly larger image.

“Buddha Sanson Statue”The northern period of the three Buddha statues in the late 6th century
This is the stone Buddha of Sanson who uses the yellow stone, and the Buddha is sitting with no fearless mark, and the bodhisattva on both sides stands. It seems to be a simple making, but the expression which is smiling was impressive.

“Bodhisattva ‘ Hankashiizou ‘ speculation statue”China North Wei era (first half of 6th century)
Here is the image of ‘ Hankashiizou ‘ speculation that one foot is set and another leg is grated below. It seems to be a typical pose to defeat the upper body slightly to the front and to indulge in pensive. My right hand is damaged, but I think I was probably holding my hand on the cheek. Smiling a little, I receive a quiet and intellectual impression. Moreover, it was felt to be graceful that the body was slender and the head was large.

“Taoism Sanson statue”China North Wei era Eihei year (508-511)
This is a rare product of the three statues of Taoism although the appearance is like the Buddha image of Sanson. Although there are those that have been made under the influence from the Buddha image also statue of more and more Buddha-ish W Japan the two pillars of what seems to be tobiten in the background, it was interesting to know that there is a statue that was greatly influenced by the Buddha image in Taoism.

Chinese Gold Copper Buddha >
The last is the corner of the gold copper Buddha. A golden Buddha was lined up.

“Buddha Seated Statue”Chinese Song Dynasty Yuan Jia 14 years (437)
This is a golden bronze statue, sitting there with a fire-like light, and a Zen seal. It was a Buddha image where the folds of the robe were carved considerably finely, and the power such as swirling light backs was felt.

“Bzan and Vasila Verrahi”Tibet 18th-19th century
This is a golden statue of a two-pillar God hugging each other. One pillar is a bzan with four faces and twelve arms, and the other one is his wife, Vjurraverlarer, and he treads Shiva and Durger under his feet. The appearance that the arm spread radially was dignified, and was wearing the image of tension.

“Statue of Kannon Bodhisattva”China Tang Dynasty (early 8th century)
This is a statue of Kannon with a treasure crown and cloth, and has a water bottle in his hand. The arm and the foot are long on a slender side, and a very slender figure with the flowing cloth pulls eyes. It was small, but it was a form of beautiful modeling especially in this exhibition.

So, I was able to see a variety of Buddhist statues mainly in India and China. I think that there is a chance to watch it in the future because this collection exhibition is held often in this Eisei Bunko. It was an exhibition where the depth of the Hosokawa family’s collection was felt.
