“Art has some Dhamma in it. It doesn’t always have to be the story about the Buddha.”
(stills from “Village and Elsewhere” by Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook)

first saw this when i was 14, now i’m revisiting “the kiss” when i’m, um, the reverse of 14. 😜 always a joy to marvel at rodin’s technical virtuosity but i now find myself drawn more to his unfinished works - an enigmatic pantheon of beasts and bodies.

this week we’re moving on to buddhism in korea. first stop, the korea foundation gallery at the british museum...
.
in order of appearance:
1. iron buddha from the koryo dynasty
2. double layered porcelain jar by jeon seong-keun, who trained as a wood carver and restorer of buddhist temples. i know the body of the jar looks like it’s carved out of wood, but it’s actually porcelain with a lacquer finish. just amazing! 😍
3. joseon era ceramics
4. a moon jar from the joseon period
5. one of yee sookyung’s “translated vases”, highlighting the kintsugi technique of gilding cracks in ceramics to repair as well as adorn them
