The full moon, a symbol of the enlightened mind in Buddhism, is an object of contemplation in Japanese culture. This showpiece of Oribe pottery is a specially decorated square bowl for serving sweets during tsukimi or Japanese "moon-viewing" celebrations honoring the Autumn full moon. Hand painted design shows the full moon rising over a field of susuki or Japanese pampas grass. Presented in a traditional wood gift box, it makes a splendid gift for someone who practices tea ceremony or who appreciates fine Japanese ceramics.
