Japanese Meiji Bronzes
With this oriental exhibition, we try -and hopefully succeed- to show the variety of this fascinating items, the Japanese bronze statues and artworks, made at the Meiji-era.(1868-1912)
All of the artworks represents the excellent craftmanship of the artists of the late 19th century. One of the exhibited item was a bronze pot holder as a perfect example of the subject, because the whole body has built from turtles. The artist created the forms so perfectly, that the observer expects the small animals to move sooner or later.
