I liked that the photos are in black and white, seems to fit more with the "sereneness" the figures were made to convey. Were they in a temple/monastery?

Hey Mall,

Thanks!

Actually, these statues were inside a crafts store in the East Village.

Ahh. I wondered where so many such statues would be together in a bunch. I don't get the "Buddha fields" reference, though.

Nice shot, that top one.

Thanks.

It's the title of a book by Lafcadio Hearn, one of my favorite authors on Japan.
