I made this to test some new techniques such as scratching, blurring as in watercolor painting, and using togidashi maki-e for a painting-like expression. I designed the ruins of the Angkor in Cambodia. A large temple made of stone that looks like a pyramid appearing in the jungle. I thought, "This is what I want to make!" , and tried to make a piece close to my image. I enjoyed the process of trying new things to express my own unique art work.

Maki-e (literally “sprinkled pictures”) is a representative lacquerware technique that originated in Japan around 1,200 years ago. Maki-e is done by painting lacquer motifs on the surface of a piece using a fine brush and then sprinkling gold powder onto the lacquer before it hardens, producing luxurious decorations.
