In Japanese tradition, an o-fuda is most often represented as a printed sheet of paper which, by the central presence of an image or sometimes simply an inscription, embodies a being venerated in Buddhism or, more rarely, in Shintoism. An o-fuda, distributed to the faithful, is both a support of private devotion and a talisman signifying the active presence of the divinity. The exhibition brings the remarkable Bernard Frank collection closer to the works exhibited in the Buddhist Pantheon of the Guimet Museum, through a refined scenography that borrows the use of wood from traditional Japanese architecture.
