Kyoto Saga University of Arts, Ganngoji Cultural Research Center and Taiwan National Cultural Assets Reservation Institute have conducted joint research on Taoism Temple's Shrine Kousaikyu designated as the third-grade archeological site located in Tainan City in Taiwan. The purposes of this project were as follows :
1.To research classical painting techniques and materials applied to the mural and door paintings.
2.To reproduce the mural and door paintings.
3.To study the preservation of mural paintings thereby providing a model case for future preservation projects.
1.As for the research, we focused on traditional techniques : groundwork with pig blood, wood oil painting, gilding swollen lines with gold leaf, and a technique for applying paint with a trowel. After we conducted interview surveys and literature research, we analyzed these techniques, comparing Japanese, Chinese and Korean methods, and then performed a series of practical experiments. The research would be valuable as a con
trast of modern and classical techniques, at a time when modern techniques are replacing the more traditional ones.
2.In reproducing the door painting of Kousaikyu we applied the original techniques and pigments used in the Shin Era for the purpose of the reproduction of classical techniques. In the reproduction of the door painting of the Oh royal family shrine, we aimed to recreate the original images and colors. In cooperation with Kyoto Saga University students, we copied pictures painted with a technique utilizing a trowel thereby employing Japanese painting processes.
3.We made a rule for maintaining the status quo, and cleaned the surface of the paintings to prevent the paint from scaling off. We exhibited the achievement of the restoration and preservation of these cultural assets. The exhibition was highly evaluated in Taiwan as a breakthrough in the restoration of a cultural asset. We also gave lectures on the accomplishment of the research and exhibited the reproduction of paintings in Japan in 2003 and 2004. Less
