|This exhibition focuses mainly on the progress of the research
by the Division of Conservation and Restoration Techniques for Sculpture.
A series of X-ray pictures shows the inside of Buddhist statues which is invisible from the outer surface.
It reflects the development and undergoing of the statues including Buddhist statues introduced
from foreign countries and sculptures made in the early Meiji period in Japan.
Observation of the statues' inner side makes it possible to imagine the enthusiasm and contemplation of sculptor.
Scientific investigation is indispensable in addition to traditional technique for these researches and conservations.
We would be glad if some association can be brought out from the photo images obtained
by the use of examination machineries and instruments.
