Sanjusangendo (Hall of Thirty Three Bays), # 33, 1994
16 7/10 x 21 1/5 in. (42.4 x 53.9 cm)
Gelatin Silver Print, a single image of 1001 statues at the Sanjusangendo (a temple in Kyoto). Sea of Buddha, is a result of Sugimoto's desire to show the statues as they were meant to be seen during the Heian Perod (794-1185). After seven years of red tape, Sugimoto was finally granted permission to enter the temple of Sanjusangendo, "Hall of Thirty-Three Bays" and photograph the Armed Merciful Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara figures, which have been passed down eight-hundred years.
