Our Inspiration: Sutra Box (Kyōbako) with Lotus Pond

Japan, Edo period

Lacquered wood with gold togidashimaki-ehiramaki-e, and e-nashiji (“pear-skin picture”); early 17th century

Mary Griggs Burke Collection, Gift of the Mary and Jackson Burke Foundation, 2015   2015.300.292a–c

This box with a shallow drawer was made to hold Buddhist sutras and is decorated with the sacred symbol of Buddhist art: the lotus pond. The style of the leaves, stems, and seed heads in the various stages of the plant’s life is reminiscent of early 17th-century designs by Tawaraya Sōtatsu. The application of the hiramaki-e (flat “sprinkled picture”) and e-nashiji (“pear-skin picture”) sprinkling represents a later type of the Kōdaiji lacquer style.
