Summary "Representing an extremely rare form of artistic expression, the statue of Kuya in the Kyoto temple Rokuharamitsuji is regarded as a masterpiece of the Kamaukura period. Critic Shuichi Kato sees the statue as the epitome of everyday prayers directed at the Amitabha Buddha. While looking at new forms of sculpture that emerged in Kamakura-period Japan, the programme also examines the transcendental values of this turbulent era and how they influenced Japan in future years." -- NHK International's catalog.
