Abstract

  • This work is a print of Buddhist images called syubutu or inbutsu. The print was originally placed in the internal cavity of a wooden standing statue of Bishamonten, considered a protector of the teachings of the Buddha. This particular Bishamonten was housed in a statue at the Yamato Nakagawa Temple, which prospered in the late Heian period as a branch of Kōfukuji Temple in Nara. The print has seven Bishamonten impressions, four on the upper part of the page and three on the lower part, each approximately 17 centimeters tall. They stand on bases made of rocks, with swords in their right hands and miniature stupas on their left palms. An annotation on the back of the print dates it to the year 1162, making this the oldest extant print of Buddhist images bearing the year of production. The work is also an important document for the study of print culture in the Heian period (794-1185) and the Kamakura period (1192–1333).(en)

    摺仏または印仏と呼称される仏教版画。平安後期、興福寺の末寺として繁栄した大和中川寺に伝来した木造毘沙門天立像の胎内に納められていたもので、右手に剣、左掌に宝塔を載せ、岩座に立つ高さ約17cmの毘沙門天像が上段に4体、下段に3体捺印されている。紙背に応保2年(1162)の識語がある。現存する仏教版画のうち制作時期の推定できる最古の作例で、平安、鎌倉期における出版文化研究の重要な資料のひとつである。
