The theme of the lecture was "Learn the life in Kyoto during Edo periods through the folding screens, the Wind and Thunder Gods." While students had been learnt that the center of the Edo periods was Edo, where is Tokyo now, and the period was "the period of the masses," at the lecture, the teacher explained that Kyoto was also economically and culturally rich so that the folding screen "The Wind and Thunder Gods" was created in Kyoto.
The teachers were volunteers of university and graduate school students, called "Cultural Property Sommelier" who had taken schooling at Kyoto National museum and also Dr. Mizutani, anassociated fellow of Kyoto National Museum.

~High-resolution facsimile of “The Wind and Thunder Gods” by Tawaraya Sotatsu~

On June 29, Kyoto National Museum and the Kyoto Culture Association together held a special lecture, using high-resolution facsimile of the National Treasure “The Wind and Thunder Gods” by Tawaraya Sotatsu, owned by Kenninji. The lecture was held for 120 sixth grade students, among 4 classes, of Kinkaku elementary school.

At the lecture, students learnt Sotatsu’s dynamic depiction by imitating the postures of the Wind and Thunder gods. Also they create conversation between two gods, and through these works, students concentrated on observing the screens and later they reported what they found from the screens. In addition, students were divided into separate groups and each group created their own composition of “The Wind and Thunder Gods” by using miniature figures of both gods, to think about how unique Sotastu’s composition was. The work aimed at finding out how composition of art would change the implication of the work itself.

The lecture was led by Dr. Mizutani, an associated fellow of Kyoto National Museum, also volunteers of university and graduate school students, named “Cultural Property Sommelier” supported the teacher. Children enjoyed appreciating screens, imagining the depicted situation, such as the relationship between two gods, where they were and what they were doing. On the same day, to respond to the demand made by them, we held the exactly same lecture for children’s parents.
