National Museum of China - Ancient Chinese Buddhist Sculpture Exhibition collected Various Buddha statues, such as Buddha's head and overall Buddha sculpture. In the 1st century AD, the earliest Buddhist sculpture emerged in Gandhāra showing Greco-Roman influence. Buddhism originated in the 6th century BC in ancient India. After Buddhism spread to China around the 1st century AD, Buddhist sculpture incorporated traditional Chinese elements, gradually resulting in a unique Chinese style.
The themes, materials, and techniques in ancient Chinese Buddhist sculptures vary according to region and period. As exemplified by the finely-carved stone sculptures from Qingzhou. The radiant bodhisattva combining Chinese and Indian styles carved in the grottoes at Tianlongshan during the high Tang period. The elegant wood-carved bodhisattva of the Song Dynasty. The gilt-bronze figures of Tibetan Buddhism produced by imperial workshops in the Ming Dynasty. These images illustrate the evolution of Chinese Buddhist sculpture and inspire understanding of the philosophy of Buddhism through artistic expression–the perfect match of religious belief and aesthetics.
