Samurai and Inari (kami), each on the long side, wrapped around the short sides. As always, the carving detail is absolutely incredible, doubly so in this finest quality red clay. This is an exceptional container for a very masculine tree - like a Japanese Black Pine (Kuromatsu) or other very masculine tree - while not implicitly an evergreen. Includes both a signed & stamped gold cloth, and a kiribako (kiri wood box) made by master artisan Ikkan. These are extremely high quality kiribako, worthy of Kawada-san's artistry.
The external dimensions of the container, including the lip, are 5.7" long, 4.8" wide, and 2.8" tall.
