KEY WORD :@art history / sculptures
@
Also written ­•§Žt. The term first used in the early Heian period for Buddhist sculptors working in a team, subordinate to a master sculptor *daibusshi ‘啧Žt. As the demand for sculptures increased, workshops *bussho •§Š, were set up where up to several hundred shoubusshi served as assistants to the daibusshi. During the Heian period the size of commissioned works increased and complex construction methods developed, such as the jointed block technique *yoseki-zukuri Šñ–Ø‘¢. This led to a division of labour where shoubusshi specialized in various skills, for example making metal and jeweled decorations for a statue *kazari busshi éR•§Žt or applying gold-leaf *hakushi ”–Žt.
