I have met a great piece of art aggregated many Buddha images at Tokyo International Forum exhibition, and it was definitely sending me an irresistible power and some kind of message. Sen Nin Butsu (Millenary Buddha) Project is the art project that aggregates a thousand pieces of Buddha drawings from people in earthquake-stricken region. I interviewed the central figure who organizes this big project.
What is Sen Nin Butsu (Millenary Buddha) Project?
We, as artists, visit temporary housings in the region suffered from Great East Japan Earthquake continuously and instruct the people how to draw a Buddha in order to heal their hearts. We aim to gather a thousand pieces of Buddha charcoal drawings which were drawn by people in the earthquake-stricken region. This art will be exhibited in the museums so that it will be a symbol of contemporary Buddha in order to pass down the earthquake disaster in future ages. This is a contemporary art project which all the people in the earthquake-stricken region share the significant goal of “reconstruction of heart”.
