|honpashiki emon 翻波式衣文|
|KEY WORD : art history / sculptures|
|A manner of representing drapery folds in Buddhist sculpture, in which high rounded curves regularly alternate with low ridged curves. The name honpashiki emon is derived from the shape of waves breaking on a beach. The style began to be used in the 8c, and was popular until the 19c. A good example is the Juuichimen Kannonzou 十一面観音像 (mid-9c) in Hokkeji 法華寺, Nara.|
