Description/Abstract

I researched the Shutendooji Emaki and the Pagoda. For the Emaki, I further interpreted its artistic value and cultural traditions based on its existing documents. For the Pagoda, since there is no document left, and its root was nowhere to be found, I compared it with other ancient Chinese and Japanese artworks and architecture, successfully found an identical one on a Chinese auction website, and identified its origin. It dates back to 770 and is extremely valuable since it is the earliest example of woodblock printing. Finally, I put the two artifacts together and researched the development of the Japanese writing system, which was revealed in them.
