This Japanese Meiji period bronze vase with gilded detailing depicts a Shinto ceremonial scene whereby Shimenawa (braided rice straw ropes) encircle the large Cedar tree which are considered sacred pillars of the spiritual world and are protected by the hanging streamers and tassels (Shide).

A depiction also seen in Hokusai's view of the Tōkaidō highway at Mishima, showing travellers measuring the tree's girth by attempting to link arms.

Signed on a tablet in gold by Miyao.

Circa 1880.
