The areas of very fine nanako with branches of bamboo inlaid with dark shakudo, highlited with gold and with a few gold leaves. On the front face perched on a branch is a finely carved plover of gold whose eyes are inlaid with shakudo. The artist used a style of richness and splendor to create a masterpiece." (Haynes)
