This engraving gives a fascinating glimpse into a Japanese Temple filled with religions statues and worshippers. The engraving was included in Jean Frederic Bernard's monumental history of religious ceremonies, manners and dress from around the world. The nine-volume work was filled with illustrations by Bernard Picart representing a multitude of different religions, and was even translated into English, Dutch and German language editions. Engraved by C. du Bosc.
Nice impression and color.
