Receiving a second commission from Sohtoshu Toukouji Temple, we engaged in the renovation of the chantry of Nirvana. The artistic ceiling, hand carved by a woodworker represents "a linden tree", which surrounded Buddha when he entered Nirvana. The plastered walls around the statue were beautifully hand polished and lacquered by craftsmen as well. Every detail was designed for visitors to spend time in an environment of quiet prayer beside Buddha.
