Japan has been mainly influenced by three different belief systems including Shintoism, where its effect can be seen through the traditions and politics of Japan; Buddhism, whose effect is shown throughout Japan’s celebrations and social activities; and Confucianism, which made effects on the daily lifestyle and education of Japan. Although these three belief systems all have greatly influenced Japan in multiple ways, however, Shintoism’s impact on Japan is the most evident. Shintoism’s influence on Japan is clearly shown throughout the political system and traditional pastime and activities of Japan. Shintoism is a belief system that is originated in Japan. Unlike most belief systems, Shintoism lacks religious texts and spiritual authority.
Deep River is a book written by Shusaku Endo. In the book with you can read 4 main stories about seeking to find oh rather said looking to be more spiritual by following the ritual and myths in a way to be in a better spiritual connection. Each character has a very important role because one of them is in search of something that helps them to understand and manage their spirituality and emotions in a way that is comfortable. Something very curious about the book is that each chapter is mentioned with the name case. For each story gave me an idea of how I would develop the story.
However, this sculpture from the northern Wei period is most likely from the later development of the Buddha that is presented as a Chinese scholar. This is one reason why this figure is dressed in a very long robe, as the sculptures of the later Northern Wei period tended to localize images of the Buddha in relation to the Chinese sage: “Figures were depicted dressed in long robes and a Sogdian cap.” This is an important feature of this statue, which may narrow down the exact timeline of this object. The museum’s website tends to provide a much broader range over a two-hundred year period, but this ceramic figure is most likely dated to the late 400s and early 500s B.C.
When I started taking nitro to Asian art and found out that we were to write a paper about an Asian art piece at the Nelson-Atkins Museum I knew exactly what type of art work I wanted to write about and that would be a hanging scroll with ink on paper or silk. There were many beautifully crafted art pieces but there was one more noteworthy to me such as, Mori Tessan Deer on Rock. Mori Tessan (alt. Tetsuzan) (1775–1841) was born in Osaka, and was the son of Mori Shuho, elder brother of Mori Sosen. He was adopted by Sosen and succeeded him.
In this chapter I aim to demonstrate the impact Japanese art and anime has had on my own personal work as a graphic designer. I'l show how I've combined my contemporary style with ancient traditional Japanese techniques, to create new and original pieces. I will also give examples of contemporary artists who have been inspired by traditional oriental artworks and how they interpreted their inspiration. As a graphic designer, I've always believed that when creating a design, drawing from an area of influence will always strengthen an art piece and take it to the next level.
An example of pop art is A Bigger Splash by David Hockney, what all pop art paintings have in common is the interest in mass culture, mass media, and mass production. Pop Art was mostly based on bright colors and youthful exploration. A Bigger Splash was painted by David Hockney who was a British artist, stage designer, photographer and printmaker. He used to base all of this paintings on pop art, his artworks were also kind of personal and abstract.
The collection of architectural treatises that Costa e Silva assembled throughout his life draws a faithful picture of his aesthetic, theoretical and formal route. It comprises, for e.g. four editions of the essential treatise of Vitruvius. The oldest, from 1536, is the commentary by Gianbatista Caporali di Perugia. Also critical was Daniele Barbaro’s (1514-1570) famous commentary on I dieci dell'architettura libri di M. Vitruvius illustrated by Palladio, an edition of 1584. He owned the well known edition of Perrault’s, Italian translation dated Venice, 1747 and another from Naples 1758.
The subjects revolved around popular culture such as Kabuki actors, sumo wrestling, and Geisha (Harris 9). Though the practice of using woodblock to print has decreased over the years, Hokusai’s The Great Wave has helped to elevate Japanese art to the rest of the world. This essay will examine the creation process of The Great Wave and its aesthetics. The focus will be on the impact of this artwork and its symbolism.
Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist specializing in ukiyo-e painting and printing. Ukiyo-e is a form of Japanese art which was popular in the 17th through 19th century.

Among his influences in entertainment, The Beatles using his image for the album cover of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and Lou Reed’s concept album, “The Raven,” featuring references of Poe’s work were most notable (“Influence of Edgar Allan Poe on American Culture”). The writing community also studies him to strengthen their prose and ability to build suspense (Hockensmith,
I pictured this small rundown room that had a small amount of artifacts to depict historic Caldwell County. When I arrived at the museum i noticed that their was a lot more to see than I had thought there would be. I found that the museum had items such as Native American spears and arrow points, maps, grants, and deeds. There was information that informed about the founding of Caldwell County. Along with this information that told me about the foundation of caldwell county, there was information that showed the establishment of Lenoir.
I LOVE vintage needle work and embroidered tea towels. I have a TON of cute vintage veggie themed patterns, but I wanted to incorporate a few of my own. My biggest inspirations for this whole room are the WWII Women’s Land Army and Victory Garden posters. If you are unfamiliar with what I mean, you can find examples here and here. The second is a great exhibit called “Beans Are Bullets” that even has period videos.
Tenshō Shūbun is most notable for the development of the Chinese style of suibokuga ink painting (“Painting the Wind” 366). Suibokuga ink, which roughly translates to ink washing, is also known as a literai painting. Shūbun showed his devotion to his paintings by depicting important figures that portray good fortune and the natural
In ancient times, Confucianism influenced Japan in many ways. First of all, when Confucianism was introduced to Japan, Prince Shotoku borrowed ideas from this religion to create the 17 Article Constitution. The constitution brought order to Japan by enforcing laws that kept the society proper and in-check. Secondly, Confucianism also inspired some of Japan’s most famous paintings, such as the Sankyo, the Sansan-zu, and the Kokei Sansho. These paintings increase culture vibrancy across Japan, ultimately binding the society together.
During the reign of Emperor Saga, Chinese poetry was tremendously popular in Japanese society. In addition to Chinese poetry, Chinese fashion, books, and works of art, many of them introduced by the scholar Kukai, became prevalent in high Japanese society. Indeed, “Kukai…returned not only with many books and works of art, but also with knowledge of the latest Chinese fashions” (Varley 56). Furthermore, many Buddhist monks brought Chinese works of art to Japan for use in rituals, and these works of art highly influenced the painting styles of Japanese artists. Eventually, Japan had created their own fine arts culture that was an altered form of the Chinese arts.
