Maki-e is a process of lacquering wood by carefully applying the lacquer over many months using a makizutsu or a kebo brush. The flowers are 24 carat gold maki-e lacquer.  Maki-e objects were initially mad as household items for court nobles.   Developed during the Heian Period  (794–1185) and blossomed in the Edo Period (1603–1868).  Maki-e requires highly skilled craftmanship and young artists usually go through many years of training to ultimately become maki-e masters.ファイル:Chokunyu_Tanomura_Paintings.jpg
