Small black lacquer portable shrine with chased brass trimmings. The gold lacquer designs on the exterior of this shrine are palonia leaves with three blossoms. A symbol of rectitude, it was an emblem used during the Tokugawa period (1600-1868 CE). Shaped as a stupa, this shrine is crowned by a lotus bud. It contains a brass Kannon, bodhisattva of compassion, accompanied by two guardian figures who wield vajras.
