White Fine Drawing Kutani Owl Figurine
This is a white owl figurine made of Kutani ware porcelain. It is painted with a technique known as "Gosai," a characteristic of Kutani ware, using five colors: red, yellow, green, purple, and dark blue in soft colors, and applying a thick layer of paint.
The round shape, small size, and fine paint overlay are lovely, and the design is suitable for a modern room.
In Japan, the owl has long been considered a bird of good omen for prosperity in business.
It is also appreciated as a god of learning and a bird of longevity.
It is also regarded as the god of wisdom in Europe and a bird that brings happiness in China.
Owl figurines are said to bring good luck when placed in places where people gather a lot, for example, in the living room or entryway.
This is a great gift for people who love Japanese culture and art.

About kutani ware
Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.
I absolutely love this little creature. His face is so cute, the color is beautiful. It makes me so happy. I look on the Musubi Kiln website daily. When this owl popped up I knew I had to have him. I have purchased quite a few things from Musubi Kiln, everything has been unique and gorgeous. Each package is perfectly wrapped. The items ship out quickly. I love this group of artisans.
