Celebrating a Decade in Roppongi The First Showing of the Box with Fusenryo Design in Mother-of-Pearl Inlay and Maki-e (a National Treasure) after Its Restoration A Sacred Treasure Box

May 31(Wed) - July 17(Mon)

This exhibition takes as its starting point the Box with Fusenryo Design in Mother-of-Pearl Inlay and Maki-e (a National Treasure), which is being exhibited for the first time since its restoration.

Beautifully decorated “treasure boxes” like this box were not only the cherished possessions of their wealthy and high-ranking owners. They were also commissioned especially to be dedicated to the gods, and many examples survive today as shrine treasures. This exhibition takes as its starting point the Box with Fusenryo Design in Mother-of-Pearl Inlay and Maki-e (a National Treasure), which is being exhibited for the first time since its restoration, and also presents other surviving examples of such boxes, including treasures that have been preserved and handed down at famous shrines. This glorious array of sumptuous works displays the exquisite beauty of lacquer art gleaming with gold and mother of pearl.
