VR program ”DOGU: The Dawn of Japanese Beauty”

VR Flyer
Five clay figurines all designate as National Treasures displayed in one place. They represent the "dawn of Japanese beauty."

The Jomon period began around 11,000 B.C. and lasted for about 10,000 years. Many of the clay figurines created during this period are based on the female form. A total of about 20,000 clay figurines have been discovered in Japan to date, yet only five of them have been designated as National Treasures. All five of these figurines have been beautifully recreated through VR technology, which you are invited to experience with the assistance of a live guide. Come and join us to experience the spirit, creative power, and aesthetic sense of the Jomon people through these figurines and the thoughts they embody.
