Prayers to Water

  • Prayers to Water

    Suntory Museum of Art
    16 December 2015 – 7 February 2016

    As water fosters life, it has been central to many religious traditions. The exhibition sheds light on the forms of beliefs and spirituality nurtured in Japan in relation to water. Explore water-related gods, figures of legends and rituals, as well as utopia surrounded by the water, through representations in paintings, sculptures and crafts. Some masterpieces depict Japanese dragons, venerated throughout the country as the master of water and rain.
