The Nuresagi Japanese Lantern dates back to the Edo-Period (1603-186). Due to their age, very few of these lanterns remain and are of a large cultural significance in Japan.
The Nuresagi lantern gets its name from its carving that depicts a wet heron or crane standing on one leg. The Lid (Kasa) with the falling folded lotus leaves represent Buddha. The lantern looks beautiful and will look great in any indoor display.
