Japanese Premium Wind Chime - Edo Neko / 風鈴 江戸猫

Quick view

This wind chime is created for use in the undercovered balcony or garden. It produces healing tones when there is wind and great colours when it is reflected by the sunlight.

This design is an arrangement of the "Edo Neko (Cat)" by Kuniyoshi Utagawa, a popular ukiyo-e artist who represents the end of the Edo period.

During this period, the government prohibited the drawing of Kabuki actors in ukiyo-e prints and depicting extravagant customs. Frugality, the town's vibrancy disappears, and the citizens are stressed.

Utagawa made the public very happy by anthropomorphizing cats, fish, and birds to draw a Yukaku. Among them, Utagawa is also known as an unrivalled cat lover, and many works anthropomorphize cats.

This wind chime is made by arranging an Edo cat from Utagawa and copying it into a glass using modern techniques to place it on the glass.

As the whole piece is handmade in Japan, slight irregularities in size, glaze, colour and texture might occur and reflect the nature of the artisan product.
