Comprised 138 examples of extremely rare and superb embroidered Buddhist textiles dating from the 7th century Asuka period in Japan through to the 18th century. In addition to the Japanese examples, there are a good number of early Chinese pieces and a couple of Korean. The centrepiece of the exhibition was the recently-restored National Treasure, the Taima Mandala tapestry, a tapestry hanging scroll dating either from Tang dynasty China or the Nara Period in Japan. The exhibition in six sections: 1. Asuka Period: The First Buddhist Image Produced in Japan was Embroidered; 2. The Taima Mandala Tapestry - a Miraculous Woven Image; 3. Nara Period: The Time of Giant Buddhist Embroideries; 4. From the Heian to the Kamakura Period: Exquisite Buddhist Embroideries; 5. Chinese Buddhist Embroidery: Multicoloured and Minutely Detailed; 6. Threads Passed on to the Pure Land: Embroidered Depictions of Amitabha's Descent to Save a Deceased. All the exhibits illustrated in colour, many in multiple views and with close-up detail. Preface, introductions to each section and list of exhibits (with detail) in English. Main text in Japanese.
