    This artwork is the same technique as "Squirrel and acorn" at the same corner. We could show clear pictures taken pictures at photo studio. The base(background ) is "Akebono-nuri" , a special lacquer ware. This technique has gradation of 2 different colors. This time Nakaya uses "Shobu( dark purple)" and "Kikyo(blue)" color. On this surface, motif(a squirrel) is done by Chinkin method . A skilled "Chinkin" craftsman engraved a small dot and imbed a gold powder one by one. One small dot makes a picture. In Japan, a squirrel is considered as a very good creature , because a squirrel store many foods (treasure) with its mouth. Therefore, squirrel is treated as a symbol of accumulation. On the other hand, "acorn" is a symbol of descendant prosperity because acorn is made from one tree. Therefore the combination of "squirrel and acorn" is considered as a symbol of prosperity. N
