My gallery is composed of Japan's earliest works of art and why I chose those pieces of art in my gallery. Japan has a style of art that catches my interest, especially how their paintings are made with the designs of the people (who almost look the same), mountains, the ground and the area around it. The religious culture and beliefs of Japan has also caught my attention. Buddhism and Shinto are Japan's major religions and what I think of are the statues and shrines made from the Japanese people.
