Title: Kumo Monyou Kouro
Kouro (香炉, incense burner) is made of silver. The Kumo (雲, cloud) pattern is engraved on the rid. Clouds are crowded; it seems the surface of the sea with rough waves. As clouds make it rain or snow, and their movements greatly influence the day’s weather, people once thought that gods and spirits dwell in the clouds. In ancient China, there is a theory that says clouds formed all things. Based on this idea, the cloud pattern has been considered an auspicious motif. The cloud pattern came to Japan with this belief, and people appreciate designing it for a variety of items.
