Classic Buddhism Art
The classic Buddhism art pieces include notable Buddhist figurines. These are both mythical and historical pieces, narrative scenes, mandalas, as well as other graphic elements.
The classic Buddhism artistry also includes various physical objects linked to Buddhist practice. These include bells, vajras, stupas, and architecture of the Buddhist temple.
History of Japanese Buddhist Art
Buddhist art came all the way from the Indian subcontinent. It followed the life and history of Siddhartha Gautama. Afterwards, it evolved by reaching other cultures while spreading through different parts of Asia and the world.
Buddhism played a vital role when it comes to the development of the Japanese culture. Both Buddhist religious thought and art came to Japan from China and through Korea.
The art was encouraged by the crown prince, Shoutoku during the Suiko period of Japan. It was also influenced by Emperor Shoumu of the Nara period.
In the early Heian era, Budhhist architecture and art highly affected classic Shinto arts as well as Buddhist paintings. Eventually, these became decorative pieces among the wealthy Japanese.
Acala in Buddhist Artistry and Samurai Land
Acala can constantly be seen in Buddhist art since the Heian era. Acala or Achala is a dharmapala – protector of the Dharma. In Japan’s Heian period, Acala’s depicted as an angry-faced being holding a Vajra sword and lariat.
Later representations of Acala used by the Yamabushi featured him with two fangs. One pointed up and the other pointed down.
Here in Samurai Land, we have an awesome Statue of Acala – (Fudou myo-o) that you can display as a centerpiece in your home or office.
