  • This sculpture, made in 1971, is titled "the pilgrims of the clouds and the water". It is a work in bronze representing a group of six Buddhist pilgrims, created by the Japanese sculptor Torao Yazaki, born in Paris in 1904 and died in his hometown in 1988. The front of the base, you will see a plate stating the origin of the work, written in french and Japanese. You will find this sculpture just behind the Buddhist Center Kagyu-Dzong and along the promenade Maurice Boitel, in the bois de Vincennes. It is a must-see.

  • This set of statues is located in the bois de Vincennes before the great pagoda. It is the work of the Japanese Yazaki Torao sculptor and represents zen pilgrims with their hat conical group and in the position of walkers or prayer. It was inaugurated in 1972, to honor the friendship Franco Japanese. This particularly successful together, in bronze, bears the official name of "Pilgrims of the clouds and water" and is religiously inspired. It draws on these "pilgrims Zen seeking the truth through the spectacle of nature that they travel like the clouds in the sky and like the water of the rivers", which is the definition of this set by the master sculptor. I found these very inspired statues, representing the traditional sculpture Japanese during my walks in the woods of Vincennes, close to Lake Daumesnil. These sculptures are located close to the ring road of the Lake Daumesnil in the No. 20, just off the great pagoda and the Tibetan Kagyu Dzong centre
