Nara: sacred images from early JapanFifteen major Buddhist and Shinto sacred images go on display at the British Museum this autumn in a free display titled Nara: sacred images from early Japan. The display features objects from Nara Prefecture that have never before been seen in the UK, shown alongside related Japanese and Chinese paintings from the British Museum's own collection. Visitors can see items from the AD 600s through to the 1300s including five Japanese national treasures and six important cultural properties. Highlights include Bodhisattva of Compassion and Libation dish with Birth of the Buddha, two gilt bronze sculptures dating from the early AD 700s and mid-AD 700s.
