Japanese Satsuma Bucket - For Sale

Japanese Satsuma Bucket
Price: $2750.00
Absolutely beautiful Satsuma Bucket.

Sennin Kinko is depicted riding a giant koi fish/carp, a symbol of luck, prosperity and good fortune. Kinko, a Daoist sage, is known as Sennin in Japan.

According to the legend Kinko was a painter whose specialty was painting fish, which he would never kill or eat. Rewarding his virtuous life, the Dragon King sent a giant koi to carry Kinko in his Sea World Palace. On his way back, Kinko meets Kannon who hands him a scroll illustrating the Buddhist principle of protecting the lives of all
living creatures.

The scene is of Kinko's return and the encountering with Kannon, depicted here as a male God, handing him the Buddhist scroll.

On the other side, a Japanese family of four, two children, having a tea/picnic outdoors. Both children, with scrolls at hand, probably with the same principles as Kinko's, seem busy discussing the Buddhist Principles.

The Bucket is completed with two lovely, smaller depictions of scenic, rural Japan.

The handle is like a thick bamboo cane.
Extensive moriage throughout with traditional Japanese decorative motifs and colours.

Meiji Period, artist signed on the scrolls, albeit signature illegible.
