Selected from a private collection in Kyoto, this box is lacquered in the Maki-e tradition, in which sap from the lacquer tree is sprinkled with metallic powder, such as gold, silver or copper, to create luxurious designs.These fine lacquered surfaces are evidence of the uniquely human ability to create beauty from unlikely sources.
