Buddhist Art Of China

While re-googling some of the search words that bring visitors to this site, I noticed that many people are looking for images of Buddhist art in Asian countries.

Here is a small collection of Buddhist Art Of China, which is part of the Huntington Archive of Buddhist and Related Art.

I've visited both the Longmen and Yungang Caves in China and this collection of high-resolution images of these caves brought back a lot of good memories.

Especially the Yungang caves impressed me with their sheer number and size. It is so hard in our fast-living times to even imagine that generations of monks and craftsmen were working on these caves over hundreds of years, slowly chipping away the stone to create these huge works of art.
