    £30.00 Members' price *


    An ceramic bowl decorated with ornate ginkgo leaf motifs, inspired by Japanese antiques.

    The intricate design has been inspired by antique textile patterns from Japan. In 17th to the 19th centuries, ginkgo (a type of flower native to the Far East) appeared as a motif on kimonos, ceramics, swords and even tsuba (hand guards on Samurai swords). Today it's stature remains as a popular motif representing Japanese culture.

    Made in Japan, the bowl is especially available to complement the exhibition, Shunga: sex and pleasure in Japanese art.
