the Three Regalia (sanshu no jingi) in Shinto ritual, Shinkyo Mirror is a revered
object in which the chosen deity resides. As shown here, this gilded silver on
bronze Shinto mirror, framed in a traditional wood pedestal featuring rolling
clouds over turbulent wave. The carving is firm and delicate, and the bronze mirror
appears to be free from scratch and dent or defect of any kind; although the silver
surface is somewhat tarnished due to its age, which can be polish anew if preferred.
This Shinto mirror is a rarely available treasure for a serious collector.
