It is the first tine Master Lee’s works will be exhibited outside of Asia. Entitled Masterpiece of Buddhist Art: The Works of Korean Living Treasure Master Jin Hyung Lee, the exhibit will feature over 30 bronze and wood statues gilded in 24 carat gold of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and monks, as well as ritual implements, including a life size seated triad of Shakyamuni Buddha flanked by Manjushri and Samantabhadra. All the work in the exhibition will be available for purchase.
Master Jin Hyung Lee’s works are in over 60 Buddhist Temples throughout Korea, including the Song Kwong Sah (one of the ‘Three Jewels’ of Korean Buddhist Temples and a National Treasure) and Beob Ryun Sah.” The Korea Sah International Temple in Koreatown, Los Angeles has a remarkable collection of Master Lee’s work including an unusual relief of ‘The Thousand Buddhas’ behind the main alter.
Silk Roads encourages educational or other interested groups to contact them to set up individual tours and lectures on Master Lee’s work and Korean Buddhist Art in the Gallery and at the Korea Sah International Buddhist Temple during the exhibition dates.
