The theme is “Art as a Medium for Universality”, inspired by the Hellenistic influences evident in the Tenpyo era sculptures of the Todai-ji Temple (8th century) , while two of our short films: “Great Buddha Lives!” and “Gigaku- Road of Masks” were screened. The audience consisted of academics and students of UoC’s Department of History of Art and Architecture.
