Edo Period Golden Kizoku Bento Box with Genji Motif lends its inspiration from ancient Japanese tradition that is woven into the nation’s long and fascinating history.

Carriage Wheels: Genji-Guruma: also Genjikuruma – The wheels of the Gosho-guruma (Imperial carriages) became decorative motifs, their name Genji-guruma derived from Genji, the protagonist in the first-ever novel, The Tale of Genji (which was written in 11th century Japan). Only Kizoku (nobility and aristocrats) from the Imperial court was allowed carriages with such huge wheels (because they did so much damage to roads), found on carriages pulled by oxen, so these wheels signify the nobility and court life and good fortune. If they have eight spokes they also often refer to the Wheel of Dharma, a symbol that represents the teachings of the Buddha.

Clouds: Genji-Gumo: Also spelled Genjikumo, Kumo meaning cloud. One of the cloud-shaped kimono patterns. This is named after cloud designs drawn in the famous Japanese tale, “Tale of Genji”, reputedly the first novel ever written. Clouds are often included in artistic scenes referring to the Heian Court because courtiers were referred to as “those who live among the clouds” (Kumo no Uebito).

Gold: In the Edo period, gold was used extensively in decoration as it symbolised wealth and prestige. “Since ancient times, spotless, untarnished gold and silver have been coveted as symbols of wealth and power and the Japanese tended to value its beauty in the dim reflections of gold leaf applied to pieces of art and daily items. The sweeping gold background gives the work depth and richness.
