A beautifully illustrated volume which accompanied a major art exhibition focusing on the formative links between the ancient kingdoms of the Korean peninsula and Japan's nascent state during the sixth through ninth centuries. Exploring the dynamic relations - cultural and political - between Korea and Japan in the early centuries of Buddhism's introduction to Northeast Asia, this book establishes the profound role of Korea in the transmission of Buddhist art and faith to Japan.

With contributions by leading scholars and curators in the field of early Buddhist art from Korea and Japan, this unprecendeted publication marks the first comprehensive study in the West devoted to an examination of the origins and development of early Buddhist culture in Korea and Japan. Four sections of essays introduce the transmission of Buddhism to Northeast Asia, explore links to Chinese art and culture, and present new theories on the growth and transformation of Buddhist art and architecture in Korea and Japan. A catalogue of objects in the exhibition, featuring Buddhist sculpture, sutras and ritual implements, and ceramic tiles from temples, presents masterworks of Korean and Japanese art, many of which are published here for the first time in the West.
