Inheriting Matsuhisa Hourin and Sourin’s will,
we are making various kinds of buddha statues.
In Showa 37(1962), Matsuhisa Hourin and Sourin established “Kyoto Buddha Statue Sculpture Institute”, with the purpose for training successor for each field of buddha sculpture, painting and kirikane and making various kinds of buddha images as effect of group working.
The buddha images made in this studio have been enshrined at temples all over Japan and being worshiped. And over 100 pupils are working in their own way as buddhist sculptor, painter and kirikane craftsman, taking advantage of the training experienced here.
In Heisei 4(1992), after Sourin passed away, we changed the name to “Matsuhisa Sourin Buddhist Studio” and inherit the will of Hourin and Sourin, by Kayu Matsuhisa(Sourin’s second daughter, buddhist sculptor and painter) as director and dozen pupils including Maya Matsuhisa(Sourin’s eldest daughter, kirikane master).
Engraving our respect in every shapes
In Matsuhisa Sourin Buddhist Studio, experienced buddhist sculptors, coloring kirikane craftsman and buddhist painters are engaged in “making buddha” with abundant experience and data.
We make the most of each one’s skills. For statues, we arrange making and repairing buddha statues or portrait statues. And we make other things, just like portrait painting, buddha painting and craft work decorated by kirikane.
Just like buddha statues made in the Tempyou era remain until today, we always think that present buddha images will remain in future as well, so we make buddha with the best skills.
With the idea above, we, Matsushita Sohrin Buddhist Studio, make buddha statues or
images according to your request.
We will discuss with our clients in detail until they feel satisfied, and make incredible buddha statues or portrait images. Please feel free to contact to us first.
