The appearance of playing with sea urchins is a blessing, and the caricature of birds and beasts that are considered to be auspicious is adopted as a motif. “Caricatures of Birds and Beasts” is a national treasure that is housed in the World Heritage Site of Mt. Tsugao Kozanji Temple.
The engraving is the work of Katsura Morihito, an important intangible cultural property (human national treasure) “carving” holder who has received a very high reputation for his work on items purveyed by the Imperial Household Agency.
– Single-sided engraving
A technique in which a single-edged chisel is carved diagonally into the lid body, which is made of sterling silver, to carve a pattern with inflection.
