AP Limited Editions presents a masterpiece in Maki-e, a very unique rendition honoring the rich symbolism of the Phoenix, a legendary bird in Japanese mythology, that originated from the Sun and encompassed all the celestial bodies in its being. This grand feature in Shishiai Togidashi TakaMaki-e is a labor of love, a gift of the skill of the Maki-e Shi and a brilliant amalgam of the full spectrum of Maki-e Art techniques. Crafted with precision in a flourish of Gold and Silver powders, adorned with shimmering silver lipped pearl oyster shells, great green turban shells, and rare Tamamushi shells; several colors of pure Urushi Lacquer craft this brilliant tale of a male and female Phoenix set against a backdrop of ethereal waves of celestial seas. Double Phoenix iconography expresses the perfect synergy of the yin and yang principle, that renews and sustains all creative life force and shines through darkness as an everlasting inspiration.
