Ordering number : #10

Era:Edo period.
Special feature:On the front side, a broom is represented with copper and gold iroe. The reverse is a Chinese. The design called Kanzan-Jittoku-zu. Kanzan and Jittoku are the names of Chinese Buddhist priests. It is thought that they were incarnation of Bodhisattva. To quote another authority, they were guardian deities of perfect harmony. It is said that Kanzan was very good at writing poem so his attribute is a scroll. Jittoku means picking up in Japanese was an orphan. He was supported by a Zen priest and worked for him doing housework so Jittokuユs attribute is a broom. Usually they are always represented with their attributes but sometimes designed only with attributes, a scroll or a bloom. This technique is called rusu-moyo in Japanese.
