15th/16th century Niō statues on world art market. Documentary for the auction of a Muromachi-period set of Niō temple guardians that are styled after the famous Niō pair at Tōdaiji Temple in Nara Japan.

Guide to Japan's Seven Lucky Gods. After many long years of research, alas, I am only scratching the surface. But my recent updates to the Seven Lucky Gods page are worthy of review......nearly 500 annotated photos and nearly 150 pages. Enjoy. 
Seven Deities of Fortune in Japan - Ebisu, Daikoku, Benten, Hotei, Bishamon, Fukurokuju, Jurojin. One of the most popular deity groupings in modern Japan. Only one from Japan, three from China, and three from India. Photo Gallery with Commentary.

ART NEWS. Of all the precious and fragile artifacts in museums, silk clothing and artwork can pose the most puzzles for historians. They frequently have to rely on circumstantial evidence and guesswork to assign a date of manufacture for ancient silk clothing and tapestries, as traditional carbon dating requires samples so large that it visibly damages the fabrics. A new ultrasensitive chemical technique now promises to solve those silky mysteries.
