Note (brief)

    First coined in the 1980s (Su Bai 1982, 141-142), yingzuo mugou is a modern term adopted by archaeologists and art historians referring to painted representations of timber architectural components in underground architecture (e.g. tombs, reliquary chambers). The meaning of yingzuo here as a “painted representation of something” has departed from its original context in the Yingzao fashi. Similar appropriations appeared in 1950s (Su Bai 1957), such as in yingzuo men e (painted representations of door lintels), and yingzuo puzuo (painted representations of corbeling (bracket sets)).2

    現代考古、美術學界用語,最早出現于1980年代(宿白 1982, 141-142),指地下室 (如墓室、地宮等) 之中彩畫繪出的木構建築構件,這裏“影作”的含義與其最初語境(即《營造法式》)有別,相似用法最早見於1950年代,如“影作門額”、“影作鋪作”等。2
