Ueno National Museum

We visted the National Museum before we went to the Zoo. Here we (or should I say I) learned about how buddhism moved through the Asian Continent.

My Camera unfortunately was running out of batteries here so the photos are minimal. But I think they turned out fairly well.

I hope you like sculptures...

These are two standing statues of priests made in the 6th and 7th centuries.

This is the first building I looked in. Here contains the treasures of the Japanese temples from the first millenium.

A scepter used by a priest in the 7th or 8th century.

Buddhism may be a religion of peace but not without war.

This is a Buddha head found in Pakistan in the 2nd century. Made of Schist.

Another upright statue of a holy figure from the 7th century.

Statue of Hercules. Found in Hatra, Iraq in the 1st-2nd century. Limestone.

The Head of Asura. Found in Siem Reap, Cambodia in the 11th century. Made of Sand stone.

This is a candle stick from the Meiji Period, 19th century Japan. This was found in the main museum building. This building displayed general things not neccessarily related to religion.

This sculpture shows the process of how Giant Buddha statues are made.

Here is a sculdpture of Toshimichi Okubo, a famous Japanese sculptor. Sculpted in 1894 by Ujihiro Okuma.

This is an early 20th century oil painting called 'Night at the Train Station' by Shinpu Takamura.
