Bringing the rich Japanese Shinto artistic tradition to life, this
handsome volume explores the significance of calligraphy, painting,
sculpture, and the decorative arts within traditional kami
veneration ceremonies A central feature of Japanese culture for
many centuries, the veneration of kami deities-a practice often
referred to as Shinto-has been a driving force behind a broad swath
of visual art. Focusing on the Heian period (795-1185) through the
Edo period (1615-1868), this generously illustrated volume brings
the rich Shinto artistic tradition to life through works of
calligraphy, painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts. Thematic
essays authored by both American and Japanese scholars explore
different dimensions of kami veneration and examine the
significance of these objects-many of which have never been seen
outside of Japan-in Shinto ceremonies.
