Details

A ceramic Japanese hand warmer (teaburi) in the shape of a monkey (saru). The hand warmer would have small pieces of charcoal placed inside for use during the cold winter months.  The monkey sits on its haunches holding its hands on its chest. The monkey is a common motif in Japanese art, popular for both its personality as well as its various auspicious characteristics. Most notably the monkey is associated with longevity, which originated in Chinese mythology.
