This is an original by the artist Yano Shutoku. Look at the serene and joyful expression of the heavenly maiden, dancing like a butterfly in midair! Using the "lost wax" technique, only one piece can be produced from a single cast, which enabled the artist to express the peaceful countenance of the maiden and her flowing robe. She is perched atop a black wooden base. Each version of the same work is different and are limited in number because of the technique used.
It comes in an original wooden box with the title on the front of the cover and the artist's signature on the back of the cover.
Regular care only requires dusting and wiping with a dry cloth.
