The Silk Road and the Great Buddha of Nara

 

The colossal bronze statue of Buddha, over 16 metres high, was the symbol of the imperial authority, and its completion in 752 was marked by the grand ceremony, attended by Emperor, Empress, aristocrats, thousands of officials and monks, as well as foreign guests from many regions of Asia. The ceremonial artefacts used in this occasion are still preserved in the temple storehouse Shoso-in, together with the emperor’s personal belonging
