The Buddha and one of the two flanking Bosatsus in the Daikodo (Great Lecture Hall - 8th-12th century), Horyuji, Nara. The lecture hall, the Yakushi triad (the Buddha and Bosatsus), and the four heavenly guardians (one of which is visible) were rebuilt in 990. Photography is forbidden in the Daikodo, so this was taken from the courtyard.
