"A shakudo plate kozuka with polished surface. Inlaid in relief with shishimai, also called Dai Kagura figure holding bamboo pole and New Years pine tree. The robe of carved gold and the mane of silver, as is the lower portion of the figure. This is the "lion dance" figure of both Chinese and Japanese culture. A design seen in many Japanese art forms. The back is polished shakudo and is signed, lower center: 'Katsuryuken Masayoshi', (H 04907.0). He is Iwama Masayoshi the great late Edo period master, who was a student of the Hamano school. He was a prolific artist and his work was very popular in Europe where one can see many examples of his work. This is a classic example by this artist." (Haynes)
