Condition: very good

A well cast Japanese bronze koro combining ancient motifs with hand chased details. In keeping with the Buddhist ritual origins of such bronzes, various mythical creatures are featured around four ornamental floral panels of peony blossoms. Starting from the base of the koro, three intricately stylized bats in raised relieves are adorning the hexagon shaped plinth, and three Chinese taotie masks are presented atop each leg of the censer; which resembles the face of the Garuda-lion, one of the three Victorious Creatures of Harmony. Supporting the handles are two single-horned makaras derived from Indian iconography. And the lid of the censer is mounted with a spiral tailed writhing dragon. With a deep copper patina illumined by traces of green malachite, the censer appears to be heavy for its size, and remaining in in very good condition.
