Koken Murata

In Praise of Sunshine

The thin lines of inlaid mother of pearl seem to guide light, representing human psychology. This work was inspired by a novel written by Akutagawa Ryunosuke based on Karma by Tolstoy, which originally comes from a Buddhist story. The relief that represents light and people is decorated with foil pressing, Maki-e, and inlaid mother of pearl. Blazing red lacquer is applied on top and the surface is polished to expose the pattern.
