The Jomon culture began around 12,000 years ago. Earthenware vessels of this age with various motifs and styles are the starting point of “Highlights of Japanese Art.” In the Yayoi period (450 B.C.- A.D. 250), pottery with a simplistic yet refined beauty and dotaku bell-shaped bronzes were prominent.
