    The Five Hundred Arhats

    "The Five Hundred Arhats" by Kazunobu Kano (1816-1863)

    Arhat, in Buddhism, signifies a spiritual practitioner who has realized certain high stages of attainment. The implications of the term vary based on the respective schools and traditions.

    The Five Hundred Arhats was created just when Western culture was beginning to come into Japan. Kazunobu mimicked the Western paintings he came in contact with, adopting into his work many techniques of shadowing and perspective unknown in Japan at the time.
    Kazunobu died at the age of 48. He finished being drawn up to 96 scrolls and he spent about ten years on the production of "The Five Hundred Arhat". Apprentices completed four scrolls of the remainder....
