Free tour: Copies and Invention in East Asia

Sun., Sept. 29, 2-3 p.m.

The act of producing copies has a special meaning in Buddhism. From simply reciting and rewriting Buddha’s teachings to creating multiple images of sacred Buddhist figures, objects and texts, or the commissioning of one million pagodas, copying served to increase karmic merit—​guaranteeing a better afterlife and eventually leading to enlightenment. In this conversation, Kevin Carr, Associate Professor of Japanese Art History at University of Michigan and specialist of Buddhist art, and Natsu Oyobe, UMMA Curator of Asian Art, will guide us through Buddhist art objects featured in the current UMMA exhibition "Copies and Invention in East Asia."
