Kyoto 3 – Bronze Creatures

Posted on Jun 25, 2010 in Japan

I’ve been meaning to do a little post about some of the creatures I’ve run across in Kyoto.  I’ve seen more here merely because I’ve had a day off to look around.  One of the things I’ve noticed is that there is that quite often, different materials and textures are placed together.  Like this dragon fountain.  Metal, stone and water all working with each other.  More on that later.

For now, I wanted to post these pictures of a Dragon from Kiyomizudera Temple, and two Guardian Lions from Yasaka Shrine.
