Promotional Information

The first book in any language devoted entirely to Japanese sculpture of the Hakuho period (c. 650-710 CE)

About the Author

Donald McCallum is professor of Japanese art history at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Zenkoji and Its Icon: A Study of Medieval Japanese Religious Art and The Four Great Temples: Buddhist Archaeology, Architecture, and Icons of Seventh-Century Japan.


Against the broader trends to view the Hakuhō period of Japanese art as an extension of the Asuka period or as a transitional phase leading to the celebrated artistic accomplishment of the Nara period, McCallum argues for the essential uniqueness of this 60-year period. . . . The volume’s 50 large and beautiful illustrations enable the reader to follow McCallum’s discussion with relative ease.
