Smiling Jizo statue of Enko-ji temple, Kyoto, Japan
Ancient Jōmon earthenware...12000 years old. The Jōmon period (縄文時代 Jōmon jidai?) is the time in Japanese prehistory from about 14,000 BC to about 300 BC, when Japan was inhabited by a Neolithic culture which reached a considerable degree of cultural sophistication, above all in pottery, despite limited development of agriculture and no use of metal.
