Untitled vessel

Ray Allen

A bulbous vessel with a narrow base and wide mouth that is flanged. The vessel is made up of small, glued pieces of wood that are then turned, creating an intricate pattern in the wood's fine, finished surface. The predominate decorations are bands of diamonds and triangles that run around the widest point of the vessel and beneath the flanged mouth.

Kokon Jôruri zukushi series: 'Ishidômaru' (Kûkai as a child)

Andô Hiroshige

This print illustrates a scene in a jôruri play based on history. Ishidômaru is the childhood name of a figure better known to history as Kûkai, the early 9th-century founder of the Shingon sect of Buddhism in Japan. In this scene, the child Ishidômaru has come to the remote mountain of Mt. Kôya in search of his father, a warrior who had taken the tonsure. When the two finally met, the father refused to recognize his son. The rejection of family ties was one of the basic tenets of monastic life in Buddhism.
