The Japon Louvre Sculpture Museum can be found in Tsu City, Hakusan-cho, in the Northern region of Mie prefecture. It is the only museum officially recognized by the Louvre Museum in France as a sister museum. Displayed here are 1,300 replicas of famous sculptures from the Louvre and around the world. The sculptures displayed inside the museum are made by the art staff at the Louvre. They take molds directly from the original sculptures, so the size and detail to every wrinkle and crack are the same. Visitors can view the Venus de Milo, the stele of Hammurabi’s Code, and many invaluable pieces from up close. There are also replicas of sculptures from the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and others. The Japon Louvre Sculpture Museum is actually run by the nearby Hojuyama Daikanon Temple, so there are also many Buddhist sculptures as well. One of these is an 11-faced, thousand-armed Kannon, one of only three Senju Kannon in Japan that actually have 1,000 arms.
