This is an anti-Christian notice board from the British Museum (yeah, there is a theme right now...). Here is the translation they gave:

Christianity has been forbidden for many years. Of course, if there is someone suspicious you must report them. Rewards will be given as follows:


    For handing over a priest - 500 pieces of silver
    For handing over a brother (monk) - 300 pieces of silver
    For handing over someone who has returned to their [Christian] faith - 100 pieces of silver
    For handing over someone who shelters Christians, or is an ordinary believer - 100 pieces of silver
    For reporting someone who shelters Christians, or an ordinary believer, you might be paid [up to] 500 pieces of silver, depending on their importance
    If a Christian appears from hiding or some other place, then the headman and the five-man committee of that place may also be treated as criminals


Know ye well
The Magistrate, 1st day, 5th month, Tenna 2
It is hereby ordered and must be strictly observed in this territory

Thanks so much for posting all these photos!

It occurs to me, though, how were you able to get these photos?

I was in London when the new Japanese gallery opened, back in 2006 or '07, and they didn't allow photography inside the galleries, or else I'd have photos of all these objects myself, too.

There were no problems with photography when I was there (no flash). There were a few exhibits (like one on jade), where they said no photography at all, but nobody stopped me and I wasn't the only one. I also remember taking photos the last time I was there, which may have been after 2006--I can't quite recall (either 2005 or 2007, I suspect). They just didn't want them used professionally without permission.

Hrm. Guess I missed out. Good for you, though!
