Mount Fuji koro
Price: € 1.100,00
A patinated bronze kôro 香炉 (censer) formed beautifully like the iconic Mount Fuji 富士山 (Fuji’san) engulfed by high relief swirling cloud banks.
When used the smoke from the incense will escape from the reticulated top and a pair clouds near the ridge, and leave a lovely swirling trail due to the shapes.
Two stylized kanji at the bottom side: ‘Seating cloud’ 坐雲.
Height 19 cm, Width 39 cm, Depth 22 cm.
Weight 3.9 kg.
Meiji period (1868-1912)
In a very good original condition. An old and small repair along the rim of the cover. Please look at the photos for a condition reference.
The burning of incense in Japan began during the 6th century (the Asuka period) with the introduction of Buddhism, which uses incense during rituals and ceremonies. Agarwood was imported into Japan from China via Korea. From that point on, incense would become an important facet of Japanese culture. Incense is used for a variety of purposes, including Buddhist ceremonies, spirituality and meditation. (From Wikipedia)
