|KEY WORD : art history / sculptures|
|Decorative drapery used on statues in the Kamakura region from the late Kamakura period. The drapery was made in clay relief, usually in a mold, and then attached to the figure. Exceptionally thick, deep drapery folds were achieved using this method. A good example is the Amida nyoraizou 阿弥陀如来像 (1299) in Joukoumyouji 浄光明寺, Kanagawa prefecture.|
