Yagihashi Tsukasa (Jabrec-Art-Music) 2010


The explanation to the constructive theory of buddhism sculptures that the early Mathura school shows,
the progressive step in the Gupta mathura school and Asuka sculptures Japan and Vajrayana Mandala Tibet. The origin of this theory is found in wide Eurasia area before Mahayana.
