Japanese Gallery

UMMA’s Japanese collection has notable strengths in painting and ceramics of the early modern era. A highlight of this gallery is the life-size Vairocana Buddha (sometimes called the primordial or supreme Buddha), which dates to the 17th century. There is also a set of armor from the Daimyo period, a collection of both traditional ceramics and delicately glazed modern interpretations of these traditional techniques, and other delights.
