Japanese sculpture has been around for thousands of years, and in that time it has gone through many forms and phases. Kamakura is considered to be the renaissance era of this art form, and it was a time when sculptors mainly used wood and bronze for their creations. Asia Society delves deep into the meaning of these sculptures in their new exhibition, where they analyze the relationship between “realism and the sacred empowerment” of the sculptures on display. More than 30 pieces from private and museum collections from North America and Europe are included. For more information, visit asiasociety.org.
