About

Striking contemporary Japanese Imari sleeping cat in fine pure white and porcelain with generous gold details, is inspired by the small wooden sculpture at the entrance of Toshougu shrine in Nikko, Japan, by the acclaimed sculpture artist and architect Hidari Jingoro. The wooden sculpture is recognized as a national treasure. It is called Nemuri Neko, meaning sleeping cat or peaceful cat, representing a kind of peace that allows a cat to have an ease of mind to sleep with its guards off. This sleeping cat in pure white, characteristic of the finest Imari-Arita porcelain, is decorated with patterns in gold and has a scarf around her neck in red with blue polka dots, and the light blue reverse side showing, with a bell attached. This attractive contemporary hand-painted sleeping cat is from a highly regarded kiln in Imar-Arita region of Japan with a long history of creating very fine contemporary porcelain pieces inspired by the traditional Imari traditions. Dimensions: W 10 in, D 6.5 in, H 4.5 in.
