Reflected Temple Model by Takahiro Iwasaki

Reflected temple model by Takahiro Iwasaki

“Reflection model (perfect bliss)” by Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki is an incredibly intricate scale model of the Byodo-in, a 10th century Buddhist temple near Kyoto, Japan. The wooden sculpture is a faithful replica with one exception—it has been doubled, with an inverted version of the temple attached seamlessly underneath. The entire sculpture is then suspended with wires for an almost spaceship-like effect.
