Japanese red and gold lacquer vase with Shibayama panels inlaid with cranes and flowers and the cover with a mother-of-pearl finial, Meiji Period.

Shibayama was the mosaic-like inlay technique used to decorate Japanese objects such as inro, vases, dishes and table screen. This highly-skilled work required the meticulous carving of very small fragments, which were inlaid into a wood or gold lacquer base. Just as in a jigsaw puzzle these pieces ultimately formed a complete scene.

In Japan the crane is a symbol of long life because of its fabled life span of a thousand years.
