Notice of co-sponsorship of the special exhibition, “Hakuho, The First Full Flowering of Buddhist Art in Japan”, at the NARA NATIONAL MUSEUM
July 9, 2015

As part of our cultural and social contribution program, Daiwabo Information System will co-sponsor the special exhibition, “Hakuho, the First Full Flowering of Buddhist Art in Japan”, hosted by the Yomiuri Shimbun.

The term “Hakuho”, used mainly in art history study and archaeology, denotes the period and culture from the mid-600s to 710 when Japan transferred the capital to Heijokyo, in Nara Prefecture. The appeal of Hakuho art is epitomized by the Hakuho Buddha statues, especially those in gilded bronze. The statues are full of youthful feeling, and some are as lovely as a child.

Held in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of the opening of the Nara National Museum, the exhibition achieves the aim of displaying a composite picture of Hakuho art, which the museum has been treasuring for a long period of time, as a museum exclusively devoted to Buddhist art. The exhibition comprises around 150 representative works, and offers related events, to provide visitors with a rich and valuable experience.
