Kyoto, Japan


A Buddhist temple containing a veritable army of over 1000 statues ranked in bays the length of the building.


The gilded gloom of the temple interior with its ranks of life-sized statues is the perfect light in which to become lost in their beautifully carved faces. The repetition of forms and the burnished glow of such an acreage of gold leaf are mesmerisingly beautiful and a world away from the bustling city which laps at its doors.
