A splendid construction of a temple in the style of the famous Kinkaku-ji of Kyoto. Standing at just nine inches
tall, this charming little shrine is constructed in three compact sections. Featuring on the first level, two tiny hinged
small doors opened to reveal a miniature meditating Amida Buddha. On the second level is a small patio with tiny guardrails,
with an empty interior that may had once been served as a relic chamber, which can only be accessed through lifting the
intricately constructed rooftop; where a hidden sumi inscription indicated that the shrine was originated from the Kyoto
Temple, dedicated to the Zen Master Heiden Shonin, and signed by the artist: Masu Tomori. Its finely aged condition
ultimately resonates with a spiritual essence in its entirety. The dedicated craftsmanship in this rare wood shrine is
radiating with placid magnetism.
