New: Kutani Figurine "SHISHI" guardian lion


"Shishi (獅子)" is an imaginary creature that looks like a lion. It is believed to have the power to get rid of evil and plague.

In Japan, shishi statues were placed in front of shrines, paired with komainu (guardian dogs) to ward off evil. 


Each piece is uniquely handcrafted in great detail by a dedicated artisan of Kutani ware, making a lively expression, vibrant colours and powerful appeal.
