  • Thumbnail for Portrait of Prince Shōtoku (Shōtoku Taishi) with His Younger Brother and Son
    Portrait of Prince Shōtoku (Shōtoku Taishi) with His Younger Brother and Son by Anonymous

    Hanging scroll; ink, gold, and colors on silk. 70" x 26 1/2". Stored in paulownia wood (kiri) box. Prince Shōtoku (Shōtoku Taishi or Imperial Prince of Holy Virtue; 574-622) is regarded by later admirers as Japan's first great imperial statesman, the founding father of Buddhism in Japan, and the human incarnation of assorted Buddhist deities and distinguished monks. Belief in the interrelated nature of these accomplishments assured his leap to the status of mythic hero. This painting is a later version of a very famous, iconic portrait of Prince Shōtoku and his brother and son wearing Chinese-style court robes, dating to the late 7th or early 8th century and owned by the Imperial Household Agency. Paintings such as this and the cult with which they are associated came about in part because of the successful promotion of Prince Shōtoku by those with a vested interest in perpetuating the lineage of the imperial family by portraying its members as national heroes. Ironically, although power struggles within the imperial family shortly after Prince Shōtoku's death wrested authority away from his direct heirs, the usurpers could not undo the mythologizing of the Prince that elevated him to divine status.

  • Thumbnail for Samsara (Wheel of rebirth) (Thangka)
    Samsara (Wheel of rebirth) (Thangka) by Unknown

    Ground mineral pigment on cotton, silk, 64 (L) x 39 (W) inches. This is a common Tibetan theme that represents a dynamic vision of karma and the cycles of rebirth in various forms, both coarse and subtle, earthly, heavenly and hellish. All are driven by the beastly desires symbolized by the snake, bird and pig located at the center of the wheel. The twelve causes of rebirth are shown on the rim while the six conditions of birth are shown inside the wheel. The wheel is held in the grasp of Yama, the lord of death. The message here is that the teachings of the Buddha offer a path to escape from this world of endless change and suffering.
