A heavy Japanese bronze censer with a highly detailed and expressive foo dog motif on the lid, the feet of the tripod shaped into powerful claws, above which rest toothed taotie masks with single horns and curling manes. Hand-chased designs of geometric and cloud motifs are inscribed around the bowl. At the sides two simple, distinctly Japanese handles are attached. The jewel of the piece is the foo dog, playing with the fabric ball of the lion, the decorative cords splayed about the lid. The surfaces of the lionís back, mane and tail show curled furry spirals which terminate at the upraised five-tufted tail. Although it appears light in the photos, the overall patina is almost black; the inside still contains ash.
