A dark brown patina bronze okimono that captures an extraordinary moment of serenity, portraying a man sitting with his head bowed in a welcoming gesture while gently resting his open hand on his leg, while a thousand-year-old turtle, Minogame (蓑亀), with a long and lush tail, approaches trustingly to the palm of his hand.

The engraved details on this bronze okimono depicting a man with the turtle Minogame are of extraordinary finesse, accurately capturing the expression on the man’s face and the structure of the turtle.

The concept of a “thousand-year-old turtle” is symbolic and does not represent a biological reality, but rather expresses the idea of a long and prosperous life. This symbol is often used to wish someone a long life, good health, and prosperity. It can be found in art objects, decorations, gifts, and cultural symbols and is often associated with ceremonies and festivals that celebrate old age and wisdom.
