Jizai Okimono are naturally articulating representations of animals.  The craftsmanship of articulated Jizai Okimono has been a Japanese art for many generations.  The subjects depicted include insects and snakes, crustaceans and even mythical dragons and fish. The materials used have been iron, bronze and sometimes silver and gold. This demonstration of craftsmanship by armorours and sword makers originated at the beginning of the 18th century to express their craftsmanship and skills in fabricating complex armour and weapons.
