This finely detailed work of art is hand tooled depicting three small sparrow like birds sitting on branches of rice plants. The birds have a thick coat of gold Makie and silver giving them a three dimensional look and feel. The top and sides of the outside of the box is a deep red color and bottom and inside is a nice shiny black. The Makie is a crafting technique from old days in Japan several hundred years ago. Use of Urushi lacquer as an adhesive and sprinkling of pure gold powders, pure gold leaves, silver powders complete designs as a picture on various adornment, therefore, called Makie (sprinkled-picture).The Makie was refined over time and became the gorgeous art, craft peculiar to Japan. It has several areas where the lacquer has been chipped off around the edges. Please see pictures for condition.

Measures: 7 3/4" x 7 1/4" x 2 7/8"
