Estado muy bueno, ver descripción - 40×21×21 cm

Large bronze vase with outstanding original patina and lustre, with subtle nuances of green and red on a dark brown background.
Unusual and rare naturalistic representation in high relief a couple of deer of Nara, with the stag's antlers protruding completely from the body of the vase and the doe's gentle movement of the body reproduced painstakingly with great style and precision.
The unusual "hat" shape of the top section, with the lip featuring a floral openwork, is elegant and very well proportioned.
Masaaki 政明 maker's mark under the base, within a square enclosure.

Nara was the capital of Japan between 710 and 794. Even today it is possible to encounter the famous deer of Nara when visiting the town.
The Japanese do not care much for deer, but those in Nara are sacred animals and can move freely. They are considered the sacred messengers of the deities of the Shintoist temple in Kasuga, located within the city walls.
