Summary
Featuring the renowned seventh-century gilt-bronze Sakyamuni (Shaka) triad at the Horyuji, Constructing the Dharma King reveals how the impression of a Buddhist image evolved in Yamato, Japan, from the indistinct sense of divine otherness at the early stage of the transmission to more concrete ideals and values concerning families, authority, and kingship.
