A Japanese spectacular rectangular-shaped lacquer kobako box decorated in makiè lacquer on a nashiji black background depicting a pair of Manchurian cranes in a naturalistic scene. Manchurian cranes, symbol of luck, longevity and fidelity in Japanese culture, are painted with great precision and detail. Their long legs and slender necks are portrayed with elegance and grace. Makiè technique creates a three-dimensional effect and a sense of movement, bringing manchurian cranes to life on the lacquer surface. The cranes’ feathers look real, thanks to the skill with which they have been painted using thin layers of lacquer and gold dust. The nashiji lacquer, characterized by small golden dots, gives the surface an effect of depth and refinement. Inside, the Kobako box, is also covered in nashiji lacquer while the edges are in silver. This kobako box depicting a pair of Manchurian cranes is together with its tomobako, storage box, a custom-made paulownia wooden box decorated with Japanese characters to protect it over time.
