Restoration

It is hella hot here, so I went home midday. I might go out again later, and will post tonight with all that I did today, but right now, it something odd. I dont really know how I feel about the restoration of historical monuments. It might just be that because of "The Great Heisei Restortation" that is going on right now that I am a bit pissed about not getting to see some cool things, but if you have 'restored' something lots of times, and very recently, how accurate is it to say that the object is really 1000 years old. you can call anything you want a national treasure, but what do these restorations really do? Also, occaisonally things can be rather misleading when in big letters it says "from the year 1200, and it small letters it says was destroyed 9 times since then, this one is from 1967", or something like that.

any ideas? I have taken a stance on restorations yet, and would like some input.

what an interesting observation, especially about restoration in Japan in particular. Consider the famous shrine, Jingu, at Ise, the very seat of Shinto. The holiest building(s?) there are rebuilt every 20 years in exactly the same style that has always been used, except that it (they?) is rebuilt on an empty spot immediately next to it each time, so the "old" one doesn't have to be torn down, first. Thus, one is always standing complete. When the "new" one is finished, the other comes down, and 20 years later a new "new" is rebuilt on that spot--right, left, right, left, etc. So, is the building 20 years old, or is the fact that it has been "new" for 1000 years mean it is just remarkably well restored? There's a koan for you! We can talk about it more later. much love from your pa.
