This made in Japan Menuki features skeleton bones & crane Nozarashi, litt. "weather-exposed skeleton" is featured in many popular folk or horror tales but as a motif it is considered a symbol of courage or preparedness. In the collection of poems by Matsuo Basho, Nozarashi invites to a reflection of our own mortality. This theme also illustrates the dangers of travel in the early Edo period, as well as the fate of many samurai warriors on the battlefield.
