  • Taketora Menuki - M037

    This made in Japan Menuki features bamboo & tiger design. The first appearance of the tiger in Japanese litterature is in the Nihon Shoki (720) an tells the story of a Japanese ambassador in the Korean peninsula who had his child grabbed by a tiger. He pursued the tiger, slew it with his sword and brought back its sking with him to Japan. Tigers not being indigenous to Japan, they mainly looked mysterious and "cool" to the Japanese over the centuries and it came to symbolize bravery and dignity. Because the tiger was thought to be especially protective of its young, lucky tiger goods were used to pray for the health and safety of children. Bamboo is found all over in Japan and is frequently used in construction and handicrafts, which explains its omnipresence in all aspects of the Japanese culture. Because of its strong root, it's a symbol of prosperity. Simple and unadorned, the bamboo is also symbolic of purity and innocence, which is a concept found in many Japanese expressions such as "Take o watta youna hito" which literally means "a man like fresh-split bamboo" and refers to a man with a frank nature.
