Enhance Your Natural Essence
Those things are heavy on their own, let alone stuffing a body in there. Though they were made so beautifully, the handcraft are just amazing in those days.
Japanese arts are always neat and beautiful.
Hi Joanna, this is marvelous display ... I always love museums ... and this pieces are great ... thanks for dropping by On This Side of Town
thanks for sharing this piece of history to us Jo, the palanquin is wonderfully mastercrafted.
Self, I thought that too. These people that carried the emperors had to be very strong and in fantastic shape :DRainfield, yes, they really are so beautiful, thank you.Vernz, I love museums as well, can never get enough of them. Thank you.betchai, You are welcome my friend and thank you :)
Very beautiful. What a way to travel huh?
Beautiful, the detail and craftsmanship is amazing. I really enjoy seeing pieces like this palanquin.
i will fit perfectly well in it. but then, maybe i will not be able to ride in it in the first place because i am not a royal blood.very interesting. the craftsmanship of the carrier is amazing.
I always wondered what it felt like riding in these. I think this is the way I'd like to travel. Maybe not quite as comfortable as some modern limos, but a lot more prestigious.
WoW!!! What a way to get around!
Ann, really huh? Though I'd be a bit claustrophobic Squirrel, it as a treat to see in person.ruthi, yes the artwork is gorgeous.Ratty exactly :) Though it could be a bumpy ride.Bossy, It would be cool but I don't think I'd fit in one very well :D
What a beautiful piece, and full of history!
