Sample text

Moreover, one cannot say that all designs with peeled off urushi are in relief. Tomio Yoshino in his Studies of the Shosoin ( 1929) says that heidatsu consists in lightly burnishing and peeling the urushi off thin gold and silver foil designs. Therefore there are two types of gold and silver foil design, one being the relief kind and the other being the recessed kind. Hyomon uses a thick kanagai (gold or silver leaf) and urushi is applied several times until it becomes a beautiful piece of art when burnished.

All the objects listed there are examples of heidatsu; not one example of hyomon is found. Thus they avoid separating heidatsu and hyomon in terms of technique after realizing the difficulty of matching the actual objects with the documents. From this, it can be said that there is one interpretation which says that heidatsu and hyomon are different techniques and another interpretation that says that they are the same. Today, there is so much support for the idea that heidatsu is the Chinese name and hyomon is the Japanese name, that this is becoming accepted as fact.

It was Tomio Yoshino's Nihon Shikko-shi ( 1934) that suggested for the first time that both techniques were practically the same but that heidatsu is the Chinese name and hyomon the Japanese name. This idea is based on the fact that there is no use of the word hyomon in Chinese documents but in Japan during the Nara period there are at least six examples (nine items) of hyomon plus numerous examples in later ages . He concludes that this is similar to calling the Chinese "kyocho," "soku " in Japanese and that this interpretation is the solution to the long argument over heidatsu and hyomon.
