Red Decorative Kutani Owl Figurine

JPY ¥28,000

This is a red 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, and applying a thick layer of paint. The red color and bold patterns give a powerful impression, and at the same time, are meant to ward off evil.

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.

It is beautiful! This is a gift for my son. The owl is his protector and I know he will love it. It was beautifully wrap, which I had to open, so I could see what I purchased. I only wish I could have gotten rewrapped as beautiful as the way it came. I am half Japanese and so happy to support my county of birth.
