Moist Celadon with Gold Crane-Shaped Covered Bowl



As the adage goes, "cranes live for 1000 years, turtles live for 10,000 years,” the crane and turtle motif, originating from China, symbolizes good luck and embodies the notion of perpetual youth and longevity.

The phrase "Crane lasts a thousand years” dates back to the Chinese Han Dynasty (around 130 B.C.). It derives from the concept expressed in the saying, "鶴寿千歳、以極其游、蜉蝣朝生暮死、尽其楽”.

Turtles, known for their longevity compared to humans, frequently appear in various myths.

In Chinese culture, Mt. Horai is believed to be inhabited by immortal hermits, with the turtle serving as the messenger, thus establishing its image as a symbol of longevity and immortality.

This container, featuring a lid, is perfect for storing delicacies or small items.
